Statement On Christian Unity
31 May-5 June 1964
Rejoicing over promising changes during the past several years toward better relations among Christians of the major branches of the Church, and especially in our relations with our Roman Catholics brethren; and recognizing that a renewed emphasis on our common faith in Jesus Christ brings more trust and less suspicion, more cooperation, and less conflict.
This General Assembly expresses its gratitude to God for the growing manifestations of progress in Christian unity; commends the efforts at better understanding already made by our Church; and encourages its members, ministers, institutions and agencies to join with others, including Roman Catholics, in fuller expressions of that unity which is God’s gift in Jesus Christ to all believers.
