Ecumenical Faith Declaration

Comments (1)

 Does this ecumenical faith declaration category have legitimacy?   Might we see consideration given to adding other  reformed confessions and statements, like the three Westminster Standards, the Scots Confession, the Gallic Confession, the Second Helvetic Confession, the Barmen Declaration, the Augsburg Confession and others?    Are we truly concerned about ecumencity in a more comprehensive manner, or are we more concerned about church politics and alliances with denominations with which we have no direct working connection at a local level?  Do we have any African Reformed Churches in North America with which we can meet, work or worship or establish christian schools, or set up soup kitchens or old age homes?   On the other hand, could we do this with North American Churches who hold to the confessions and statements mentioned above?   So which confessions would then be more ecumenical, and more significant?

What constitutes legitimacy in this context?

As for the various documents you mention, go ahead on - refer them to the EIRC to ask they be considered for inclusion, or see if your council and/or classis will do so.
