At The Church of the Incarnation our worship, faith and practice is Catholic.

We profess and defend the "Faith once delivered to all the saints." (Jude 1:3)  We believe and practice only "that which has been believed everywhere, always and by all." (St. Vincent of Lerins). It is a timeless faith for a faithless time. St. Paul warned us, "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." (II Timothy 4:3)

We are not Roman Catholic, nor are we an Anglican church which is seeking union with Rome through the Ordinariate.  Nor are we Eastern Orthodox or part of the good number of Anglican churches which have become part of the Western Rite of Orthodoxy.  Neither do we defame or deride those who have made such choices. 

We are Protestant insomuch as we consider ourselves to be Reformed Catholics, or Evangelical Catholics.  But we have not given up the historic episcopacy and Apostolic Succession. 

We are Catholic, but not Roman;  Orthodox, but not Eastern;  Evangelical, but not Sectarian.  We love and support all of our brothers and sisters in Christ, no matter where they go to church, and pray that God gives us all the "unity of Spirit in the bond of peace," (Ephesians 4:3) that, in the words of Jesus, "
they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me." (John 17:21)
