Toward the Renewal of Biblical Anglicanism in North America: An Independent Renewal Movement

By Robin G. Jordan

A second important way of promoting the renewal of biblical Anglicanism in North America is to form an independent renewal movement—a movement that is not attached to one particular jurisdiction but operates independently. This will enable the movement to work as leaven in a number of jurisdictions. It will also reduce if not eliminate the barriers that the movement faces arising from its association in people’s minds with one particular jurisdiction.

The present North American branch of the Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans functions as an auxiliary to the Anglican Church in North America. It is subservient to the ACNA and is not free to pursue its own agenda. Its relationship with the ACNA has effectively emasculated it as an agent of renewal.

All of the other branches of the GFCA are, to my knowledge, independent organizations.
