Vatican official examines developments in relations with World Council of Churches, Baptists

Catholic World News - February 18, 2014

In an article that appeared in the most recent English-language edition of L’Osservatore Romano, Father Gregory Fairbanks, an official of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, discussed recent highlights in ecumenical dialogue with the World Council of Churches and the Baptist World Alliance.

In March 2013, the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches, published “The Church: Towards a Common Vision,” which Father Fairbanks described as “a major ecumenical statement on the nature and purpose of the church, the broadest ecumenical statement on ecclesiology ever produced in a multi-lateral framework.”

Dialogue with the World Baptist Alliance, he added, led to the July publication of “The Word of God in the Life of the Church: Scripture, Tradition and Koinonia.”
