I describe myself as an Evangelical Anglo Catholic. I am also somewhat on the Charismatic side, believing in the gifts of the spirit. To explain this hybrid belief structure let me put it this way - I am catholic in that the sacraments are integral to my faith, especially the Eucharist where we experience the true presence of Jesus among us, and I accept the doctrine of Apostolic Succession. I am evangelical in that I am passionate about the importance of scripture and the study of God's Word, and about spreading the news about the gift of salvation as far and wide as I can. I am Charismatic in that I accept that the gifts of the spirit are alive in the Church, including tongues and prophesy - though I don't accept the widely held view among the charismatic movement that Tongues are always the first sign of receiving the Holy Spirit.
