[sydneyanglicans.net] 21 Oct 2008--This week, Sydney’s Synod has voted overwhelmingly to endorse the Jerusalem Declaration, a statement overwhelmingly supported by those who attended GAFCON in June. At the time of GAFCON, Archbishop Peter Jensen said the declaration would ‘help bring order out of chaos’. Synod’s declared support for the historic communiqué has come as some GAFCON churches continue to be targeted by the liberal dioceses in which they find themselves.
Synod endorsed the Jerusalem Declaration “as exemplifying the tenets of orthodoxy which underpin our Anglican identity” and to “invite all Anglicans in Australia to endorse the Declaration”.
Synod also agreed to “congratulate our Archbishop and Assistant Bishops on their attendance at GAFCON and their move to continue our development as a truly Bible-based Anglican Church”.
