Local & Regional Ecumenism

Across the United States Christians of all kinds come together as one body of Christ in councils of churches, as part of interfaith councils, in cooperative social ministries, in informal neighborhood initiatives, in advocacy organizations, as clergy associations, and in many other communities.The National Council of Churches relates to these groups in a variety of mutually supportive ways.

Locally, regionally, and nationally, we all seek to witness to the good news of Jesus Christ as we:

  • pray together as one body of Christ
  • act together to serve the poor and the disadvantaged
  • dialogue together about Christian unity and interfaith relations, and
  • advocate together for more just social policies.
