“Once more the Anglican world is indebted to Dr Noll for his writings. This time he expounds and explains the “Letter to the Churches,” showing how significant it is and what a tragedy it will be if those in places of authority ignore or belittle it. I warmly commend his work.” — Dr Peter Jensen GAFCON General Secretary
The Global Anglican Future Conference of June 2018 “Letter to the Churches” is a bold call to proclaim God’s Gospel, reform God’s Church, and reach out to God’s world.
The author of The Global Anglican Communion and Convener of the Gafcon Statement Group has published the complete text of the Letter to the Churches, with section-by-section commentary and insights into how it was produced, edited, and approved so joyfully by the entire Assembly in Jerusalem.
The Rev. Dr. Stephen Noll, who served as Convener of the Statement Group, offers commentary on the Letter to the Churches, section by section, along with insights into how it was produced, edited, and approved joyfully by the entire Assembly.
From “Letter to the Churches” —
Over the past twenty years, we have seen the hand of God leading us toward a reordering of the Anglican Communion. Gafcon has claimed from the beginning: “We are not leaving the Anglican Communion; we are the majority of the Anglican Communion seeking to remain faithful to our Anglican heritage.”
We testify to the extraordinary blessings on this conference, which leads us to call upon God even more, that the Anglican Communion may become a mighty instrument in the hand of God for the salvation of the world. We invite all faithful Anglicans to join us in this great enterprise of proclaiming Christ faithfully to the nations.
At the third Global Anglican Future Conference in June 2018, nearly 2,000 delegates from around the world gathered to worship God, to hear inspirational teaching and testimony, and to chart the way forward for biblical Anglicanism. The Letter to the Churches was the Conference statement that summed up the hopes of those gathered for the global Anglican future.
The Letter to the Churches has three main sections: “Proclaiming God’s Gospel,” “Reforming God’s Church,” and “Reaching Out to the God’s World.” Each section is rooted in Scripture and the Person and Work of Jesus Christ. Each section engages the great challenges facing Christians today from within and without the Christian community, including threats to the uniqueness of Christ, to God’s creation of men and women in his image, and to the authority of the Bible.
Stephen Noll’s Commentary seeks to interpret the text of the Letter to the Churches faithfully, drawing implications and applications for confessing Anglicans within the Anglican Communion. In particular, he explains what the Letter means by “reordering the Communion” and “Questions for Canterbury.”
Excerpt from the Commentary on Letter to the Churches:
Gafcon believes that it has a historic vocation to reform, restore and reorder the Anglican Communion, as was said at the first council in Jerusalem: “And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written, “After this I will return, and I will rebuild the tent of David that has fallen…” (Acts 15:15-16)

Through the Cancer Storm With Jesus Christ
“More than 1.5 million people each year will enter a storm of life-threatening proportions we call cancer. And at least 1 woman in 8 will suffer breast cancer in their lifetime – 650,000 each year. The great fear that accompanies a cancer diagnosis is surpassed only by the heavy toll treatment takes on the patient’s physical, emotional, relational and spiritual life.

ACNA Relationship We are a tax-free nonprofit founded in 2013 to be a strong media arm of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). We are an Ministry Partner of ACNA pursuant to church canons. Ministry Partners are well suited to develop a particular ministry and related fundraising opportunities. Ministry Partners of other denominations include schools, relief agencies, and publishers. To ensure ACNA representation, several Bishops serve on our Board of Directors, including Archbishop Foley Beach, and our Chairman, Archbishop Emeritus Robert Duncan. A bylaw grants the incumbent Archbishop the right to perpetuate ACNA’s representation on our Board of Directors. (Go to RESOURCES for more about Anglicanism and the Background of ACNA.)
The “Lexicon Problem” Although Anglicans comprise the world’s largest Protestant group we face an amazing dichotomy. On one hand the word Anglican isn’t really in the American lexicon – outsiders usually draw a blank at mention of an Anglican Church. On the other hand many people today, especially younger people, yearn for a connection with the Early Church, a connection Anglicanism richly provides. Even Billy Graham sees “spiritual beauty in Anglican order,” and has said that if he were “starting all over again (he) would be an evangelical Anglican.”1 This is a dichotomy rich in opportunity. Anglican House aims to help equip Anglicans, particularly lay people, to explain about Anglicanism simply and winsomely.
Our Place in Media To publish is “to make generally known to the public.” It takes national and international distribution to do it and that kind of distribution is the preserve of leading publishing houses – yet the door opened for us when Midpoint Trade Books, Inc., (the dominant U.S. distributor with operations in Canada, the U.K and Australia) added us to its list of publishers. Our contract with Midpoint gives access to major booksellers like Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Hudson News, B. Dalton, Target, and Costco. Midpoint’s position is equally strong in the electronic market, giving access to Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook and other eBook publishers.
We work together with other ACNA related publishers to make our resources available resources to them: for example, consigning titles to The Parish Press and producing for Classical Anglican Press the eBook edition of Bishop John Rodgers’ fine commentary on the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion.
