Welcome to Forward In Faith!

Forward in Faith North America (FiFNA) is a fellowship of people and churches who embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who uphold the Evangelical Faith and Catholic Order which is the inheritance of the Anglican Way. Our fellowship works, prays, and witnesses for reform and renewal of the Church with "no compromise of truth and no limitation of love." Our fellowship includes faithful Anglicans spanning many jurisdictions and structures with the mission to witness to the "faith and order of the undivided Church."

FiFNA reaches out across traditions, jurisdictions, and other divisions to reach many within the Church and those who have not come to know the love of God in Jesus Christ. FiFNA encourages the fullest degree of communion where there is common understanding of belief. FiFNA encourages every member in spiritual growth to be faithful witness of Jesus Christ, in gathering two or three (the planting of churches), and in bring Jesus Christ into the lives and the world around them.

We are witnesses of Christian belief that the Church has always believed in the way Anglicans have always believed it. It is our mission to witness and teach that the Church is under the authority of the Bible, which is the Word of God written.

We are witnesses of Christian belief that the Bible is rightly understood by Reason enlightened and informed by the Holy Spirit. It is our mission to witness and make known the work of the Holy Spirit to make Jesus Christ present today, to teach and make alive the work of the Holy Spirit in the Church's genuine Tradition, which is consistent with Holy Scripture.

We are witnesses of Christian belief that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever," the perfect full revelation of the God Himself. It is our mission to witness and teach that we may not add things to or subtract things from this revelation. It is our mission to witness by conforming our lives to that revelation, even though it may set us at odds with the values of today's culture.

We are witness of Christian belief that God is one in Trinity of persons of the Father,  the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is our mission to witness the love of God made known in the relationship of person of the Trinity and in our relationship in Christ's Church by adoption. The nature of this relationship is reflected in the life-long union of one man and one woman in marriage as a God-given foundation for the relationship of family, in value of human life from conception through natural death, from the present and into eternity, and in the headship and priesthood of Jesus Christ, the bridegroom, to His Church, the bride. By adoption, every member of the Church ministers the love of God through their varied roles in the human family.
