GAFCON 2017 Communique
The GAFCON movement is a global family of authentic Anglicans standing together to retain and restore the Bible to the heart of the Anglican Communion. Our mission is to guard the unchanging, transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ and to proclaim Him to the world.
“Aware that we are approaching the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we gave thanks for the faithful witness of those leaders who challenged the Church to recover the authority of the Scriptures. They were men and women who were willing to take costly action, and sealed that testimony with their own blood.”
The GAFCON Primates met in Lagos, Nigeria from April 24 to 28. Preparations for the Jerusalem 2018 Global Anglican Futures Conference were advanced. The theme will be “Proclaiming Christ Faithfully to the Nations”.
Global Anglicans are reminded to pray for suffering brothers and sisters around the world, particularly those who are suffering from the deprivations of war, persecution by extremist Islam, and drought. Materialism, secularism, and the loss of moral foundations are more subtle but equally insidious spiritual dangers.
