In their “Statement on the Global Anglican Future” released today, participants in the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) declared that they see the Jerusalem conference as the beginning of “a spiritual movement to preserve and promote the truth and power of the gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ as we Anglicans have received it.”
“GAFCON is not just a moment in time, but a movement in the Spirit,” the statement said.
The group’s “Jerusalem Declaration” was published as the basis of “a fellowship of confessing Anglicans,” the statement said, and the group agreed to “chart a way forward together that promotes and protects the biblical gospel and mission to the world.” That declaration includes 14 points of agreement on belief, mission and ministry. The declaration also rejected “the authority of those churches and leaders who have denied the orthodox faith in word or deed. We pray for them and call on them to repent and return to the Lord.”
The Living Church News Service will be providing additional coverage and analysis of GAFCON and the “Statement on the Global Anglican Future.”
