What does joining mean? Joining the AFFN means that you affirm Christian Ancient-Future renewal in the Church– and it means you want to add your voice to the growing numbers of others who feel the same. You needn’t agree with everything here, and our voluntary association is less about doctrinal bona fides and more about mutual resourcing and encouragement. We ask, simply, that members endorse The Call to an Ancient-Evangelical Future. You should know that we embrace the historic, orthodox faith of the Christian church as testified to by the Holy Scriptures, faithfully handed down by the apostles, and valiantly defended by the Fathers, most especially in the ancient ecumenical Creeds.
Why join? Because this community is for you: You may be serving in a place of joy and would like to share what God is doing in your ministry. You may be serving in a place of hardship, perhaps facing indifference to renewal, and would like to learn how to implement Ancient-Future principles in effective, pastoral ways. You may be interested in learning how to plant an Ancient-Future church. You are welcome here. Try these links to learn more About Us, or our History and Vision.
The members of the AFFN are the heartbeat of our growing family. We urge you to reach out to them, engage, and join our number. You’ll be received with a warm embrace.
Whether you’re here to give, take, learn, teach, encourage, or be encouraged– this Network is for you.
