WCC, Global Christian Forum sign memorandum of understanding affirming mutual quest for Christian unity

The World Council of Churches (WCC) and Global Christian Forum, in a signing ceremony, affirmed their unique roles in their mutual quest for Christian unity. The agreement marks an historic milestone in the longtime collaboration between the two organizations.  

“We rejoice in the existence and in the witness of the Global Christian Forum to our common calling to bear witness together to the reconciliation and unity of all things in Jesus Christ, God and Saviour,” said WCC Acting General Secretary Rev. Prof. Dr Ioan Sauca.

Rev. Dr Casely Baiden Essamuah, secretary of the Global Christian Forum, also rejoiced at the signing of the memorandum. Essamuah highlighted the complementary roles of both entities, along with the “recognition that the calling for Christian unity requires, indeed deserves, more than one expression of ecumenical commitment and cooperation.”

"It was reaffirmed that Global Christian Forum is a platform and a forum, not an institution in itself,” reads the memorandum of understanding, referring to the evolution of the forum. “It has a structure required for administrative purposes but does not itself initiate ‘institutional’ programmes.”
