Faith and Doctrine
This chapter examines faith and doctrine in the churches of the Anglican Communion. It reveals that the function of proclamation of faith has been traditionally reserved for ordained ministers of the church and that the imposition of legal duties on members of the laity is not a general practice of Anglican churches. Anglican canon laws do not define the beliefs of churches and simply refer to doctrines found elsewhere. Doctrines derived from the Holy Scripture and the Thirty-Nine Articles are still recognized as canonical doctrine in a large number of churches.
