Ecumenism. Ecumenism is the name of a movement that promotes the recovery of Christian unity and works towards the vision of one, undivided Church. The word is derived from the Greek oikoumene which means ‘the whole inhabited world’.

The vision includes the search for visible unity of the world’s Christian Churches and the move to make this goal the concern of all Christians.

The New Testament presents a qualified church unity in truth, characterized by holiness, joy, faithfulness, and obedience (see John13, 17, 19, 23, 26). “Ecumenthusiasts” (to coin a word) seem to take for granted the eventual organic unity and communion of the great majority of the churches.

Included in this exhaustive collection of documents from the twentieth-century ecumenical movement are significant passages from the most widely influential texts produced by assemblies, conferences, and studies of the World Council of Churches and similar bodies, covering the three broad areas of historic concern within modern ecumenism: faith and order, life and work, and mission and evangelism.

A common symbol of ecumenism symbolises the Christian Church as a cross depicted as the mast on a boat at sea. The term " ecumenism " refers to efforts by Christians of different church traditions to develop closer relationships and better understandings.
