It ended the Divine Right of Kings Theory in England, which was the belief that only God had authority over a king.
It re-established the supremacy of Parliament over the monarch.
It led to the passing of the Bill of Rights in 1689, which was a series of laws that said that the king could not levy taxes, make laws, or maintain an army without Parliament's consent. People were also guaranteed basic civil liberties from this bill.
From then on, English rulers had to be Anglican.
All of these factors ultimately laid the foundation for a constitutional monarchy, which limited the power of the monarch.
