The Church – Towards a Common Vision – A response based on the Consultation on Migration and Ecclesiology – Being Church in Europe Today was issued at a consultation held in 2016, Copenhagen organised by CEC, Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe and the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Denmark.
The universal Church is not compiled of incomplete part-churches, but exists as a community of equally valid local churches, without any overriding importance or subordination of any of these churches. The local church is supplied with all the marks of the nature of the Church, which enable the salvation of human beings. The idea of love, which binds together the persons of the Trinity and in which they interpenetrate each other (perichoresis) has come to be an important impulse for the
understanding of the unity of the Church.
