Excerpt from The Episcopal Church: Its Doctrine, Its Ministry, Its Discipline, Its Worship, and Its Sacraments
Some other truths which the Church teaches have to do more directly with theology. They are statements that were drawn up by the leaders Of the Church in the midst of the doctrinal controversies of the Befor mation. They represent, as a matter Of history, the positions that were then taken. They are contained in the thirty-nine Articles. The thirty-nine Arti cles in the Episcopal Church correspond to the West minster Confession Of Faith, and to the Decrees of the Council of Trent. Except in this: that they are pre sented, for information, not for required acceptance. There they are. But no member Of the Episcopal Church is ever asked if he believes them; neither does any minister Of the Episcopal Church set his signature to them.
