Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans

The Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans (GFCA) met this month in Nairobi, Kenya at the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON).  The GFCA represents millions of Anglicans (ourselves included) worldwide who are committed to upholding the apostolic Christian faith.  To learn more about this movement see the website and read the Communique statement produced at GAFCON October 2013.  Here is a portion that clearly articulates the historic Anglican vision and the mission and vision of Church of the Redeemer:

from the GAFCON Communique 2013

The gospel alone has the power to transform lives. As the gospel is heard, the Holy Spirit challenges and convicts of sin, and points to the love of God expressed in his Son, Jesus Christ. The sheer grace of God in setting us free from sin through the cross of Christ leads us into the enjoyment of our forgiveness and the desire to lead a holy life. This enables the relationship with God that Jesus makes possible to flourish. Moreover, just as individual lives can be transformed, so can the life of churches. We therefore commit ourselves and call on our brothers and sisters throughout the Communion to join in rediscovering the power of the gospel and seeking boldness from the Holy Spirit to proclaim it with renewed vigour.
