An Incarnational and Sacramental Anglican Rite Mission Community
The Uprising Statement of Faith & Communion
We are Apostolic
The Uprising is an Incarnational and Sacramental Anglican Rite mission community which sustains full and unbroken Apostolic Succession, beginning with St. Peter. Our worship gatherings and celebration of the Holy Eucharist are rooted in the ancient liturgies and the 1928 Anglican Book of Common Prayer.
We are Sacramental
The Uprising is Sacramental, such that we believe in the two Greater Sacraments ordained of Christ our Lord in the Gospel, and the five Minor Sacraments which are commonly called Sacraments by tradition, but are not counted for Sacraments of the Gospel.
