Anglican Church

in North America (ACNA)

Anglican Church in North America Incarnation is a member of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA).  The ACNA “officially” formed in April, 2009, when they were recognized by leaders of the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON), a coalition that represents over 70 percent of active Anglicans worldwide. This happened in an attempt to reestablish a historically faithful Anglican presence in North America; one committed to, among other things, gospel proclamation, missions, the reality of sin, Biblical authority, and salvation through Christ alone. Under the leadership of Archbishop Robert Duncan, the ACNA was able to bring together members of eight different pre-existing conservative Anglican groups in North America, as well as “missionary” Anglican churches planted by Provinces in Africa and South America. 

The ACNA is not a traditional denomination in the way many Christians understand denominations today, but is rather an expression of the greater, worldwide Anglican Communion, which has over 80 Million members in over 165 countries. The Anglican Communion is the third largest Christian Communion, next to the Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church. Anglicans trace their tradition all the way back to Second Century England.
