GAFCON '18 - Plenary 2 - God's Church
Machael Nazir-Ali - We are not saved on our own. We are incorporated into the life of the church. We need to remember: in essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity. We learn from one-another. All truth is God’s truth. We must constantly be asking in relation to any teaching or practice: is it consistent with apostolic teaching and the gospel? We must not contradict Scripture. Consequently, there are limits to diversity, and there is a need for discipline in the life of the church – sometimes for exclusion, and always for restoration.
The GAFCON movement is a global family of authentic Anglicans standing together to retain and restore the Bible to the heart of the Anglican Communion. Our mission is to guard the unchanging, transforming Gospel of Jesus Christ and to proclaim Him to the world. We are founded on the Bible, bound together by the Jerusalem Statement and Declaration of 2008 and led by a Primates Council, which represents the majority of the world’s Anglicans.
