GAFCON Chairman’s December 2017 letter

Dec 12, 2017 by

To the Faithful of the Gafcon movement and friends from Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, Metropolitan and Primate of All Nigeria and Chairman, the Gafcon Primates Council.

My dear people of God,

On the 7th December, the first ordinations of the Anglican Mission in England (AMiE) took place in London. AMiE was established by the overwhelming consensus of the Nairobi Conference in 2013 as a mission society in England to help our English brothers and sisters in the massive task of evangelisation.

It is very appropriate that this historic event has taken place in the Advent season.

The second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power and majesty is essential to the Christian hope. The last book of the Bible closes with the words of Jesus ‘Surely I am coming soon’ and our joyful response in the midst of our present sufferings and struggles is ‘Amen. Come Lord Jesus!’ (Revelation 2:20).

But at Christ’s return there will also be final judgement. Those of us in the ordained ministry of the Church have a special responsibility to be messengers of the good news of the gospel by which we are saved from that judgement. To neglect that duty or to distort that message is therefore a very serious matter and brings the messengers themselves under the judgement of God. Where there is no repentance and those who are called to be shepherds of the flock continue to be unfaithful to the Good Shepherd, action must be taken.
