The Lutheran World Federation’s Commitments on the Ecumenical Way to Ecclesial Communion
“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling” (Eph 4:4)
"To be Lutheran is to be ecumenical." This conviction is at the core of this LWF Ecumenical Commitments document.
The first part of the document offers theological reflections about ecumenism and then looks more specifically at the ecumenical relations of the LWF and the Lutheran understanding of ecumenism.
The second part is the core of the document and contains the "six commitments": Each of these six commitments includes a strong self-commitment to ecumenism as well as suggestions for practical application.
