In June 2008, 291 Anglican Bishops gathered in Jerusalem with almost 900 other Anglican leaders, representing over 40 million churchgoing Anglicans from around the Anglican Communion, for the Global Anglican Future Conference. You can now join them in these Bible studies.
They issued a Statement on the Global Anglican Future and said: ‘We believe that, in God’s providence, Anglicanism has a bright future in obedience to our Lord’s Great Commission to make disciples of all nations and to build up the church on the foundation of biblical truth (Matthew 28:18-20; Ephesians 2:20).’
In his Foreword, Archbishop Peter Akinola of Nigeria, Chairman of the GAFCON Conference, writes:
In calling orthodox Anglicans to meet in Jerusalem, we were calling them to return to their roots, both doctrinally, in the Scriptures, and historically, in the Holy Land, where God has acted decisively for our redemption through the Lord Jesus Christ.
