Excerpts

"In relation to other churches, because of its confession, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, understands itself and engages in God's mission as a church that is evangelical, that is catholic, and that is ecumenical . . .

" . . . this church will pursue the goal of full communion and will rejoice in all movement toward that goal."
--from Ecumenism: The Vision of the ELCA
