Formula of Agreement
ELCAER1000 - Formula of Agreement

As churches of the Reformation, the ELCA, Reformed Church in America, United Church of Christ, and the Presbyterian Church U.S.A., signed an ecumenical proposal of historic importance in 1997. After 32 years in the making, and in light of identified doctrinal differences and consensus, these churches worked together to form a foundational document titled "A Formula of Agreement."

The agreement declared these four churches together in full communion on the basis of a common calling, a desire to bear visible witness to the unity of the church, and a need to engage together in Godís mission.
