The Leigh Road Baptist Church (LRBC) leadership and church members have been following with sadness the unfolding of events since the completion of the independent enquiry conducted by the Evangelical Alliance into accusations levelled at Tony Anthony regarding the truth of his testimony in Taming the Tiger. It will be known that the book, Taming the Tiger has been withdrawn by its publishers and that Avanti Ministries has ceased all operations.
The LRBC leadership and church membership have accepted the known findings of the enquiry and consequently LRBC can no longer support in any way any ministry of Tony Anthony.
Tony and Sara Anthony are no longer members of LRBC and the family worship elsewhere.
We recognise that the recent revelations regarding Tony Anthony’s ministry may well have deep ramifications for numerous people who were touched by his testimony, or who came to faith in Jesus, in part, through Tony’s witness. We want to offer to these people our prayers, reassurances and where appropriate any support needed. Please do contact one of the ministers of the church if that would help.
