The Nature and Mission of the Church

Along with other member churches of the World Council of Churches, the British Methodist Church has written a response to The Nature and Mission of the Church - A Stage on the Way to a Common Statement. (Follow this link for the full text of Nature and Mission.)  Drawing on the consensus reached in Baptism Eucharist and Ministry this document seeks to express common convictions about the church, its nature and mission, and to identify the ecclesiological issues which continue to divide the churches today. 

The Methodist Church response was presented to Methodist Conference in 2009.  I have updated the entry on the Methodist Church website and if you go there you will find a link to the churches' response.  This document is too long to reproduce in this post but it's worth a look!
