Anglican ADOPTION

About

Anglicanism (commonly known as Episcopalianism[link of Episcopal article] in the U.S. and other countries) is a tradition or expression within Christianity. It is one of the largest Christian communities at an estimated 85 million members in over 165 countries; comprising mostly of the Church of England and other churches that are connected historically or have similar beliefs. Though there is no one Anglican Church holding judicial authority, the faith is internationally known as the Anglican Communion.

Beliefs

Anglicans commonly believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, all of which make up the elements of one God. They believe that God the son lived and died to provide a way for all mankind to reconcile with God. They believe the Bible to be “the Scriptures [that] contain all things necessary for salvation.”

They involve regular praise and prayer on Sundays and throughout their everyday life. They also accept the mainstream Christian creeds such as the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed.  

Adoption Background

The Anglican Communion does not have an official organization dedicated to foster care or adoption; however, there are many individual Anglican church-run organizations who deal with both foster care and adoption.
