The philosophy of CAA is established and rooted in scripture with a rallying theme of the Kingdom of God; a concept that is prominent in the H.E.A.L strategy. This philosophy includes the redemptive power portrayed during the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and views the cross as integral to the theme of the Kingdom of God. The theme of the Kingdom of God gives CAA and its department’s guidance on how to run its spiritual, social, economic and political life. A more detailed document on this philosophy is found in appendix 2 of this document.
Church Army Africa draws its mandate first, from scripture as it was handed over to the Apostles and early church Fathers as the only invaluable Word of God for human salvation and promise of eternal life.

Church Army Africa is therefore bound by Scripture, theology, church polity as described in the 39 articles of faith and church traditions of the Anglican Church. While Church Army is committed to training people from other churches, it is wholly owned, managed and governed by the Anglican Church in Africa.
