Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Anglican Communion is a voluntary association of national and provincial churches.
The Bible teaches that Christians should not be in fellowship with those who are false
By any reasonable reading of the Bible views held by the present Archbishop of Canterbury are
such as to mean that sincere Christians should not be in fellowship with him. We therefore call on you, as leaders within the Anglican Communion, to break fellowship with
the present Archbishop of Canterbury until such time as he renounces his published teaching.
It is apparent to us as members of the Church of England that we, and our national Church,
have failed to live up to the great privileges and blessings granted to us by God. We for our
part repent of our failings. We also recognise that without the grace of God we cannot prevent
the continuing spiritual decay in our church nor the moral decay in our nation and all that will
follow from it. We ask you therefore to pray for us. More than that, mindful of our own
weakness, of the spiritual decay throughout Europe we ask you to do all that you can to
support us in proclaiming the gospel and upholding Biblical truth.
