MESSAGE TO THE CHURCHES ‘Let Mutual Love Continue’

Greetings to all who call on the name of Jesus Christ as Lord and to all people throughout the world!

The third international gathering of the Global Christian Forum met in Bogotá, Colombia, from 24 – 27 April, 2018. We express our thanks to our Colombian hosts who have so graciously received us. We rejoice and give thanks that 251 participants from the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches, the Evangelical Churches, the Historic Christian World Communion Churches, Independent and indigenous Christian Churches and communities, the Pentecostal Churches, the Roman Catholic Church from 55 countries came together to engage with one another on the theme, “Let mutual love continue” (Hebrews 13 : 1).

The theme, “let mutual love continue”, expresses the spirit and practice of the Global Christian Forum since its inception in August 1998, when a group of 28 visionary leaders met at the Ecumenical Institute at Château de Bossey-WCC to create a new space for broadening interchurch encounter and dialogue. The Guiding Purpose Statement of the Global Christian Forum was affirmed at the first Global Gathering in Limuru, Kenya, in 2007:

To create an open space wherein representatives from a broad range of Christian churches and interchurch organizations, which confess the triune God and Jesus Christ as perfect in His divinity and humanity, can gather to foster mutual respect, to explore and address together common challenges.

CCT Call Christians to Support DACA 

 

Almost Everything You Need to Know About DACA and Dreamers – HERE

 

“While immigration is often viewed as an economic, social, or legal issue, it is ultimately a humanitarian and spiritual issue that directly impacts millions of unauthorized immigrants and the entire fabric of our society. The Bible frequently commands us to treat the immigrant justly. Further, every person is created in the image of God and possesses inestimable value. It is therefore paramount that our national immigration system protects the basic human rights and dignity of the human person. Sadly, our current system fails to meet this test and requires comprehensive reform as soon as possible.” (quote from CCT Statement on Immigration Reform) Read full statement HERE

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a specific program that provides hope to more than 800,000 children and young adults in our country. The program is supported by most US Christian denominations.

The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.

ELCA teaching or theology serves the proclamation and ministry of this faith. It does not have an answer for all questions, not even all religious questions. Teaching or theology prepares members to be witnesses in speech and in action of God’s rich mercy in Jesus Christ.
