AUSTRALIA: GAFCON Will “Disaffiliate” from ACA if Pushed to the Wall over Homosexuality

Australian evangelical Anglicans have issued an ultimatum to the Anglican Church of Australia, threatening to “disaffiliate” from them in response to the national church’s legal approval over blessing services for civil same sex marriages.

They say they will set up “alternative oversight” under GAFCON for Anglicans who want out, and they have released a statement called “Commitment 2020”.

The Australian branch of GAFCON (Global Anglican Future Conference) embraces conservative Anglican bishops and leaders. It was formed to counter the growing apostasy of Western Anglican provinces who support and allow non-biblical sexual behaviors at all levels of the Church.

They say that if a sufficient number of churches and clergy disaffiliate from the ACA, GAFCON Australia will seek the approval of the GAFCON Primates’ Council to establish an Extra-Provincial Diocese (EPD) for Australia, authorized by the GAFCON Primates.

The GAFCON EPD will be a parallel jurisdiction with the existing Anglican Church of Australia and have a geographic spread across the whole country. It is not envisioned that this will include Anglicans from dioceses where sound doctrine is upheld.
