THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF
VIRGINIA
*************PRESS RELEASE****************
INVITATION TO TRADITIONAL EPISCOPALIANS ---

Bishop says Episcopal Church enters into apostasy.

Dateline: Front Royal, Virginia, July 22, 2009

Conservative Bishop Larry W. Johnson has vowed to welcome Episcopalians seeking to affiliate with
the Anglican Church of Virginia and Dioceses of the Anglican Church International Communion across
the USA.  "ACIC is a body in Christ that has not abandoned the historic and true faith as held in the
Anglican Church for centuries," said Johnson recently after the announcement by the Episcopal Church
of the approval of gay clergy and the blessings of same sex marriage.  "Recent action  was expected,"
said Bishop Johnson, "by this action they have renounced Biblical teachings and has hurt thousands of
faithful members of the a once noble and respected denomination."  

Johnson was made a Bishop in 2001 for the purpose of creating a traditional Church in Virginia for
Anglicans and an international denomination to serve Anglicans around the world.  In 2002 the
Anglican Church International Communion was formed with Johnson serving as the first President.  
The ACIC consists of Bishops from America, Australia, India, Haiti, Cameroon, Solomon Island,
England, South Africa, Colombia and many other countries.  Major growth is expected over the next
year, according to Johnson.

Those wanting join the Anglican Church of Virginia or dioceses of ACIC should contact Bishop
Johnson by email.  Where new parishes need to be formed to serve the people Bishop Johnson is ready
to assist.  A new seminary will train laity and new priests in Virginia with other conservative Bishops in
other diocese ready also.  
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?  Be not  deceived,
fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor abusers of themselves with
mankind, nor thieves, the greedy, drunkards, revilers and robbers - none of these will inherit
the kingdom of God.

The Lord your God, who goes before you will fight for you.

Apostasy - the renunciation of religious faith.
