Ecclisiology
Adopted November 1993

By participating in the Minnesota Council of Churches, we express our trust in the triune God to lead us to a fuller expression of the unity of the churches. Our conviction is that all churches have graces to offer and receive.

Our membership in the Council testifies to our self-esteem ("In Christ, we have something to say") and to our humility ("In Christ, we have much to learn").
Rejoicing in our common baptism and lamenting our inability to feast together at the Table of our Lord, we commit ourselves to support the Minnesota Council of Churches because we know the recognition of unity requires a common seeking, grounded not just in theory but in life together, not just in periodic cooperation but in sustained fellowship.
We acknowledge that a council of churches does not know in advance the precise nature of the unity we seek to manifest; its task is to encourage, orchestrate, and assess our seeking.

We expect the Minnesota Council of Churches to remind us constantly that unity is of the Church’s essence, more than a worthy goal to be pursued if time and resources permit. The nature of the unity itself will be a surprise.
