Lecture given by Rt Rev Ray Smith, at the Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry, Ambridge, PA in December '00 on the Essentials of Anglicanism.

I want to share with you today seven defining essentials of Anglican Evangelicalism. These essentials Anglican Evangelicals share with other Evangelicals irrespective of their denomination or Christian group.

There may be those who claim to be Evangelical but do not endorse all of them. Some who do not call themselves Evangelicals will subscribe to some or perhaps even all of them, but will not necessarily give them central place in their system of belief. This latter group may emphasize and give a more prominent place to other beliefs.

1. First Essential: The Holy Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).

The first Evangelical essential is the absolute supremacy assigned to the Bible as God's written word and the only rule of faith and practice, the only test of truth, and the only judge of controversy. (Ryle, Knots Untied, p4) The Bible is inspired (God breathed); inerrant (free of error); infallible (true).

The Bible is perspicuous. Its message is clear and plain to the sincere and humble reader.
