Nigerian Primate Says GAFCON Exists Because Some Anglican Leaders Have Rejected Authority of Bible

GAFCON chairman and Nigerian Primate Nicholas Okoh says the GAFCON movement came into being nearly ten years ago because godly leaders recognized that the Anglican Communion was being divided by leaders who rejected the authority of the Bible, denied the uniqueness of Jesus and promoted patterns of life which defy Scripture and reject the pattern of creation.

“These divisions are deepening and will not be healed by the techniques of the corporate world. They are spiritual problems which need spiritual solutions and the first step is repentance, which requires that the unchanging truth of God’s Word is clearly taught and acted upon.”

“Where there is no repentance, there must be realignment. This involves new jurisdictions coming into being where necessary, such as the Anglican Church in North America, and changing patterns of relationship, both within and beyond the GAFCON movement.”

The Nigerian primate pointed to the recent decision of the Provincial Synod of South East Asia to both declare itself in broken fellowship with the Scottish Episcopal Church in the light of its adoption of same sex ‘marriage’ and to recognize the Anglican Church in North America as a full Anglican Province.
