The World Council of Churches is a fellowship of churches which confess
the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the scriptures,
and therefore seek to fulfil together their common calling to the glory
of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
It is a community of churches on the way to visible unity in one faith and one
eucharistic fellowship, expressed in worship and in common life in
Christ. It seeks to advance towards this unity, as Jesus prayed for his
followers, "so that the world may believe." (John 17:21)
