The Official Documents


The Steering Committee of the International Church Council Project has approved these documents and considers these documents ready for use in churches, seminaries, Bible schools, and for personal edification. We do not claim the documents are flawless. We invite Christian leaders from each nation to form a twelve man committee of men from their own nation to officially approve each document in its present form or to submit recommended changes their national committee believes essential to the doctrinal integrity of any document. (We are asking only for changes critical to the doctrinal trustworthiness of the documents, not for minor preferences.)

If you meet the qualifications, we invite you to help gather a twelve man committee of theologically astute biblically oriented men in your own country. Our vision, hope, and prayer is that through this process the Body of Christ worldwide will with one voice declare to the false teachers within Christianity, and to the watching world outside Christianity, that we stand together in these Christian truths, and that those who oppose these statements of biblical Christian truth or teach doctrines contrary are in error and are admonished by the worldwide Body of Christ to conform their thinking and teaching to the true grace of God revealed in Holy Scripture and expressed in these documents.
