GAFCON and the Anglican Communion

People often ask about the relationship between the Anglican Churches worldwide that have joined GAFCON (Global Anglican Futures Conference) and the Anglican Communion.  This essay by Dr. Stephen Noll is an excellent place to start.  He includes the text of the Jerusalem Statement from GAFCON’s founding meeting in Jerusalem in 2009 and a brief commentary on each clause.

Here is a quote:

The Gafcon fellowship, to be sure, is not a church but a communion of churches that God raised up when the official Communion abdicated its authority to maintain doctrine and discipline in central matters of Christian faith and life.
