Resolution 14

Church Unity and the Church Universal - Full Communion and Intercommunion

The Conference endorses the paragraph in the Report of the Committee on Church Unity and the Church Universal which refers to the use of the terms "full communion" and "intercommunion," and recommends accordingly that where between two Churches, not of the same denominational or confessional family, there is unrestricted "communio in sacris" including mutual recognition and acceptance of ministries, the appropriate term to use is "full communion," and that where varying degrees of relation other than "full communion" are established by agreement between two such Churches the appropriate term is "intercommunion."
