Statement on Ecumenical Relationships

View as PDF

"In ecumenical relations, LCMC is unique in that such relationships do not come top down but are lived out and arise from our congregations.  We confess our belief in the holy Christian Church through the creeds, and believe the unity in Christ's Church comes from faith in Christ alone and is brought to fruition through the Holy Spirit. The interaction of our congregations with other Christian congregations of other denominations through joint mission, ministry and leadership is how this is lived out. We believe in such relationships there is not a need to change who we are theologically or pragmatically, but to simply live out the Great Commission together. We encourage our congregations to relate with other Christian congregations."
