While in many occasions the Missionary Diocese of the Sacred Heart of Jesus will support causes and groups that are politically involved, we do not support nor endorse any political parties or any political candidates. Our goal is to give a voice to those who are suffering, struggling or adversely affected.
Furthermore, while we may become involved with a particular advocacy group in an effort to speak up for a specific disadvantaged group of people, our involvement with a particular advocacy group does not imply blanket acceptance or endorsement of said group and its philosophy. When necessary, the Missionary Diocese of the Sacred Heart of Jesus will issue statements of disagreement and or repudiation in order to distance ourselves and the International Anglican Orthodox Episcopal Communion from any activities that are contrary to sound Scriptural teachings.
At no time, will there be any political campaign rallies, nor any invitation of individuals who are seeking public office to be a guest speaker at one of our congregations. Although the clergy, religious and all people in the diocese are encouraged to take part of the political process, extreme care must be taken to ensure that there is a huge distinction between our work for the advancement of the Kingdom of Christ and purely partisan politics.
We believe in God the Father, maker of heaven and earth. We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate and that he suffered and died for our sins, and that He was buried. We believe that on the third day Jesus our Lord rose again in fulfillment of the scriptures. After His resurrection, Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. Christ will come again to judge the living and the dead, and His Kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, source of inspiration and divine guidance. It is equal to God the Father and God the Son.
We believe that the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ are truly present in the sacrament of Holy Communion. Additionally, we believe sacraments are more than mere symbols and that grace is imparted by their administration.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that it contains all things necessary for salvation. It is the living Word of God and a constant source of strength and revelation.
We believe that human life is sacred and that only God can give and take away life or autonomy from a person. Hence, we believe that abortion; the dead penalty, racism, oppression, bigotry, slavery and other forms of abuse violate the sanctity of life and are a sin before God.
We believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, and that cohabitation should only take place after marriage by an ordained minister. We believe that divorce should be a last resort, and that remarriage should be avoided if possible. In the event that a person remarries, it should be until death separates them from their spouse, and if another divorce should take place again, no remarriage should take place.
We at the Missionary Diocese of the Sacred Heart of Jesus see ourselves as a ministerial body that focuses on building up and encouraging those who for whatever reason are experiencing great challenges in their life to the extent that those challenges keep them from enjoying the blessings which Christ our Lord has set before them. We believe that the Heart of Jesus Christ is full of hope, and that the best way to spread that hope is by praying, giving and hoping with all people, but in particular, with those who are losing or have lost hope.
We see ourselves as defenders, advocates and practitioners of justice and equality for all people. We envision a world, where the justice found in the Heart of Jesus Christ, will be imitated by all our parishioners.
It is hoped that by our actions as a community of believers, our way of life will become contagious up to the point that the Word of God will resonate through the entire world. This we hope will bring a revival, first in our own hearts, and then in the hearts of those whom we minister to.
