Aglipayan Spirituality is our wholistic response to the call of the God of salvation to liberate His people from all forms of dehumanization. It is our relationship with God, with the community and with the rest of creation rooted in the Judeo-Christian faith and tradition. It is living out the mandate of the Gospel of Christ and our historical heritage of serving God and Country (Pro Deo et Patria).

Aglipayan Spirituality is rooted in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, continuously inspired by the Holy Spirit, manifested in the life of Bishop Gregorio Aglipay and in the lives of the founding forebears of the IFI.

It is a life of prayer centered in Christ, faithful to the Gospel, inspired and sustained by the Holy Spirit.

Aglipayan Spirituality is our continuing pilgrimage with the liberating God towards the fulfillment of the mission and ministry of the Iglesia Filipina Independiente, for the transformation of church and society and for the renewal and rebirthing of the whole creation. It affirms our hope for the establishment of the Kingdom of God here on earth.

The Iglesia Filipina Independiente, as a pilgrim Church, compelled by her spirituality, actively participates in the realization of the Kingdom of God.

Aglipayan Spirituality, inspired by the message of God "to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with Him" (Micah 6:8), is our commitment to serve God and His people in the struggle for freedom, justice, peace and total human development. A commitment whose basis is the critical and scientific analysis of the structures and systems that perpetuates the continuing destruction of life, a commitment being nurtured through immersion and solidarity with the basic masses.

It is our service to the liberating God concretized in solidarity with the Filipino people in their struggle for peace, justice, freedom and abundant life.
