[1] By This We Mean The Ranks Granted Through The Laying On Of Hands

Such laying on of hands takes place with special liturgical prayers and fasting, and through the gift of the Holy Spirit.

[2] All These Grades Are Biblical

The Scriptures clearly mentions three grades of priesthood, i.e. the bishop, the priest and the deacon. The Apostolic Canon defined the three grades as follows, the bishops are shepherds, the priests are teachers and the deacons are servants.
