STATEMENTS ON UNITY

“Our ecumenical policy is to press toward
the visible unity of the whole Christian
fellowship in the faith and truth of
Jesus Christ, developing and sharing
in its various dialogues and consultations
in such a way that the goal be neither obscured
nor compromised and that each separate
activity be a step toward the fullness of
unity for which our Savior prayed.”

1967 General Convention
The Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh


___________________________________________



“The United Methodist Church believes that
the Lord of the Church is calling Christians
everywhere to strive toward unity, and
therefore it will seek and work for unity
at all levels of the church life.”

Book of Discipline 1968
United Methodist Church
Western Pennsylvania Conference


___________________________________________



“We should recognize that the quest for
Christian unity is a response to the
Gospel of Christ. Our fundamental concern
must be that the followers of Christ
are already one. We have the obligation
to discover in what sense we are one,
and to manifest this oneness more fully.”

American Baptist Policy Statement on
Christian Unity
July 1967, reaffirmed June 1978

___________________________________________

 

“The unity of the church, as it is proclaimed
in the Scriptures, is a gift and goal of God
in Christ Jesus. Ecumenism is the joyous
experience of the unity of Christ’s people
and the serious task of expressing that unity
visibly and structurally to advance the
proclamation of the Gospel for the blessing
of humankind.”

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Declaration of Ecumenical Commitment


___________________________________________


“The Sacred Council exhorts all the Catholic
faithful to recognize the signs of the times
and to take an active and intelligent part in
the work of ecumenism. Before the whole
world, let all Christians confess their faith
in the triune God, one and three in the
incarnate Son of God, our Redeemer
and Lord. Cooperation among Christians
vividly expresses the relationship
which in fact already unites them,
and it sets in clearer relief the features
of Christ the Servant.”

Second Vatican Council Decree
on Ecumenism
