A Call from NCCI’s XXVIII Quadrennial Assembly

A Call to NCCI

  • Being an ecumenical space for all the orthodox and protestant churches and ecumenical movements in India, it needs to facilitate stronger relationships among member churches and all Christian communities at large.
  • To promote Just and Inclusive communities which practise Christian values and ethos.
  • To engage in protecting the constitutional values of the Republic of India.

A Call to Churches

  • To get rid of practices of injustice and exclusion, and to extricate its mission from aligning with financial and political powers, and to purge itself of corrupt religious and socio-economic systems and structures. Hence we will have to practice and promote caste-free, classless, gender-equal churches as just and inclusive communities.
  • To restore the beauty and integrity of God’s creation.

A Call to Individuals

  • To cease practicing exclusiveness in our day to day life, to repent and to seek forgiveness from God and all creation.
  • To seek the power of the Holy Spirit to strengthen us, to stand firmly for the values of Justice and equality.
  • To bear witness like Christ in suffering and to be committed to fullness of life.
