The Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans New Zealand (FCANZ) is part of a global family of authentic Anglicans which is committed to proclaiming the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. We do this within our local area of Aotearoa - New Zealand and Polynesia.
We seek to promote faithfulness to the Scriptures as Anglicans have historically and traditionally understood them. Through clear teaching and careful listening we will set forth the good news of the Lord Jesus and how this can be lived out faithfully in our churches and individual lives today. Because of the deeply personal nature of the current debates regarding sexuality in our church, FCANZ will seek to speak truthfully and lovingly about both the pastoral and doctrinal aspects of this issue.
We also provide fellowship for those who identify with, and confess, historic and traditional Anglicanism, especially for those who feel isolated or marginalised in the current debates. In the aftermath of Motion 30, authentic Anglicans are now found inside and outside the existing structures of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. FCANZ recognises both as authentically Anglican. Because conscience and circumstance will lead to different approaches, we will intentionally provide fellowship and encourage goodwill.
Above all, we long to see God glorified in these Islands as the gospel of his Son is faithfully proclaimed in the power of his Spirit.
We pray you join us, that together we may partner in what our gracious God is doing in his world.
