While respecting the orthodoxy, validity, and independence of every Anglican ecclesial jurisdiction, full and visible communion should exist between all Anglican Christians who uphold and maintain the following Twelve Articles.
1. The Divine Inspiration and inerrancy of the canonical Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and their supreme, final and binding authority in all matters of faith and morals;
2. The sufficiency of the three Creeds as the symbols of the Catholic religion;
3. The authority of the Dogmatic Definitions of the undisputed Ecumenical Councils of the undivided Church as the true expression of the orthodox Christian faith;
4. The necessity of the two sacraments of the Gospel: Holy Baptism and the Holy Eucharist;
5. The truth of the Doctrines of the Eucharistic Sacrifice and the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist;
6. The Divine institution and Apostolic foundation of the Five Sacraments of the Christian Life: Confirmation, Penance, Holy Matrimony, Holy Orders, and Holy Unction;
7. The Divine institution and Apostolic foundation of the Three-fold sacred Ministry of the Orders of Bishop, Priest, and deacon, and the Apostolic Succession;
8. The necessity of restricting the conferral of the Three Orders of the sacred Ministry to men;
9. The sanctity of human life, Christian marriage, and the family;
10. The expectation of the Lord's Second Coming and the establishing of His kingdom;
11. The acceptance of the 1769 Standard Text of the 1611 Authorized Version of the Holy Bible as the official Anglican translation of the Holy Scriptures;
12. The acceptance of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer of the Church of England as the foundation of the Anglican liturgy.
