Ecumenical & Interreligious Relations

Ecumenical & Interreligious Relations

Ecumenical and interreligious work is central to the gospel and key to the life of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Working both domestically and internationally, the PC(USA) is creating appropriate channels of consultation to clarify further understanding around evangelism, witness, and service, providing resources and support that will assist the church in her efforts to engage in ministry within the local context and beyond. The denomination engages in dialogue with other churches and traditions to establish common affirmations. The church’s general approach to interreligious relations is to prioritize relationships with people rather than traditions, recognizing that God is at work in all of God’s creations.

The Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations (GACEIR) believes the ecumenical and interreligious involvement and work is central to the gospel and key to the life of the church. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has put considerable material, spiritual, and personnel resources into the ecumenical movement, working to “listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches” and responding in creative ways to our ecumenical calling.
