The Apostolic Episcopal Church
“We profess to be a Branch of the Eastern Church and, therefore, a valid branch of the Universal Church, whose Symbol of Faith is the apostolic, eastern confession, and whose Orders through Episcopal Succession are derived from the ancient Eastern episcopate which is traced back to the primitive Church of the East and to the Apostles and to Our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Rt. Revd. Arthur Wolfort Brooks (1889-1948), founder of the Apostolic Episcopal Church
The Apostolic Episcopal Church is eager to co-operate and work in harmony with all, who believe in Personal Redemption through the Sacrifice on the Cross of our Divine Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who died, was buried and rose again for our Justification. It claims in this sense to be fully ecumenical.
Statement of Perry Nikolaus Cedarholm (1890-1979), AEC Archbishop of Scandinavia, 1970
Derfor skal også sådanne, som måtte have en anderledes nadverforståelse, ikke udelukkes fra nadverfællesskabet. Nadveren forudsætter hverken politisk eller teologisk overensstemmelse på alle punkter, men alene viljen til, sammen med andre døbte kristne, at ville ihukomme Kristi legems (og blods) fællesskab.
