What you need to know about GAFCON and the GFCA

GAFCON is the conference    

The GAFCON journey began in 2008 when moral compromise, doctrinal error and the collapse of biblical witness in parts of the Anglican communion had reached such a level that the leaders of the majority of the world’s Anglicans felt it was necessary to take a united stand for truth. A crowd of more than one thousand witnesses, including Primates, Archbishops, Bishops, clergy and lay leaders gathered in Jerusalem for the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON).

The second conference, GAFCON 2013, was held in Nairobi, Kenya in 2013, at which over 1,300 delegates from 38 nations and 27 Provinces of the Anglican Communion were present. The gathering gave the Primates a mandate, through the Nairobi Communiqué and Commitment, to take forward the work of the GAFCON movement. We look for the prayer and financial support of Anglicans around the world who long for a clear and certain witness to Jesus Christ as Lord.

GFCA, the Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, is the movement

The participants at that momentous gathering in 2008 agreed to establish a Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans (GFCA) as a world-wide movement of provinces, dioceses, churches, organisations and individual Christians whose goal is to help reform, heal and revitalise the Anglican Communion and expand its mission to the world. They affirmed the Jerusalem Statement and Declaration, to guide the movement. We invite all who assent to the Jerusalem Declaration to join the FCA.

We believe the Anglican Communion should and will be reformed around the biblical gospel and mandate to go into all the world and present Christ to the nations.   Jerusalem, 2008
