Gafcon Australia is part of a global family of Anglicans standing together to retain and restore the Bible to the heart of Anglican Churches
A worldwide movement of anglicans
To promote reform of the Anglican Church by the Biblical Gospel.
GAFCON Australia is part of a worldwide movement of Anglicans promoting reform of the Anglican church by the biblical gospel, and providing fellowship for those committed to it.
- To promote a positive and vibrant orthodoxy within our denomination in line with the Jerusalem Declaration and the Fundamental Declarations and Ruling Principles of the Constitution of the Anglican Church of Australia.We will do this through conferences, discussion papers, seminars, hosting international guests, through our website and social media.
- To provide recognition, fellowship and assistance to those who have disaffiliated from their diocese because of the unorthodox actions of others.We will recognise those who confess the Jerusalem Declaration as authentically Anglican, putting us in fellowship with many Anglicans who are currently out of communion with official “instruments of communion”. We will stand in support of churches and individuals who take a stand against false teaching and error in their diocese.
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 first Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON).
