WCC assembly wants closer moves to Catholics, Pentecostals

 — Mar. 6, 20066 mars 2006

Porto Alegre, Brazil (ENI). The World Council of Churches ended its once every seven years assembly held in Brazil with calls to reach out to Roman Catholic, Pentecostal and Evangelical churches that do not belong to the Geneva-based grouping. “The quest for the visible unity of the church remains at the heart of the WCC,” stated a policy document presented on the last day of the grouping’s assembly. “Our ultimate vision is that we will achieve, by God’s grace, the visible unity of Christ’s Church and will be able to welcome one another at the Lord’s table, to reconcile our ministries, and to be committed together to the reconciliation of the world.” [836 words, ENI-06-0198]
