Website

The American Anglican Council is an organization of theologically conservative Anglicans from both the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and The Episcopal Church in the United States. According to its membership brochure, it was founded "as a response to unbiblical teachings that crept into The Episcopal Church and the larger Anglican Communion." [3] The organization believes that "the Episcopal Church (and a few other parts of the Anglican Communion, including the Anglican Church in Canada) faces an extreme crisis of belief centered on the uniqueness of Jesus Christ as Savior and the authority of Scripture. This crisis has resulted in conflicts over specific behavior and practices that are informed by Scripture, including issues concerning human sexuality and marriage, though these issues are in reality symptoms of the deeper issues." [4]

In 2008, the AAC was one of the founding members of the ACNA.[5]

Mission

According to its website, the American Anglican Council is "a network of individuals, parishes, dioceses and ministries who affirm biblical authority and Christian orthodoxy within the Anglican Communion" whose mission is "to build up and defend Great Commission Anglican churches in North America and worldwide through advocacy and counsel, leadership development and equipping the local church." [6]

Positions

The AAC believes that "Christian mission is rooted in unchanging biblical revelation." Presently it sees "specific challenges to authentic faith and holiness [...] which require thoughtful and vigorous response." These challenges include moral relativism, a lack of "Christian ethical principles" in "the public life of the nation", "abortion, unwanted pregnancy, and end-of-life illness", and questions of sexual ethics.[citation needed]

Ecclesiastical status

The American Anglican Council is not an ecclesial body, but rather an advocacy organization with ministry involving education, communication, strategic planning, diplomacy, counsel and resource networking with other Anglican bodies domestically and internationally.[7]

It works directly with Episcopal Churches and Episcopalians who are committed to remaining in the Episcopal Church for the foreseeable future; conservative Anglican Churches and individuals who are in the process of leaving the Episcopal Church; and Anglican churches and individuals who are outside or were never affiliated with the Episcopal Church.[citation needed]

Leadership

The AAC leadership includes:[8]

  • David Anderson, President and Chairman of the Board
  • J. Philip Ashey, Chief Executive Officer
