The Apostolic Lineage of the ACNA

Regardless myriad of beliefs about the Historic Episcopacy and Apostolic Succession, we as Anglicans and catholic Christians have always held the episcopacy in high regard  It is sadly obvious that by merely being part of this lineage has not always meant a preservation of the apostolic and orthodox teaching.  Physical lineage may be important, but adherence to the doctrine and teachings of Jesus Christ handed to us by the Apostles is, and always should be, essential to the life and mission of the Church.
