In 1977 an international congress of nearly 2000 Anglican bishops, clergy, and lay people met in St. Louis, Missouri in response to actions taken by the Episcipal Church (USA), that represented a move away from the apostolic faith as understood within the Anglican tradition.

Their object was to determine the actions necessary to establish an orthodox jurisdiction in which traditional Anglicanism would be maintained.  The documents below are the result of this Congress and the subsequent course of church governance within the ACC.
