Ecumenical and Interfaith Team


This World Church Team provides a link between Community of Christ and interdenominational, interfaith, and other groups.

This team was created by World Conference Resolution (WCR) 1275 “Ecumenical and Interfaith Memberships” to serve as “a link between the Community of Christ and interdenominational, interfaith, and other carefully selected mission-oriented groups.”  

Mission Alignment 

Pursue Peace on Earth—Ecumenical and interfaith initiatives and organizations serve to promote understanding and cooperation around common concerns, such as justice and peacemaking efforts. Also, there will be peace on earth when the major religious traditions of the world are at peace with one another. 

Abolish Poverty, End Suffering—Cooperative ecumenical and interfaith efforts to Abolish Poverty, End Suffering both locally and globally are the most effective ways to actually achieve this mission initiative. 

Develop Disciples to Serve—Ecumenical and Interfaith organizations provide information and resources to educate disciples about advocacy and action opportunities as an expression of Christian discipleship. 

Team Priorities 2019-2023 

The Ecumenical and Interfaith Team was mandated by WCR 1275 Ecumenical and Interfaith Memberships to serve as a “link between…Community of Christ and interdenominational, interfaith, and other carefully selected mission-oriented groups.” The team was invited to provide ecumenical perspectives on virtual gatherings and sacraments to the World Church Leadership Council.
