Section IV.1 - Commitment to full, visible unity

Resolution IV.1

Commitment to full, visible unity

This Conference:

  1. reaffirms the Anglican commitment to the full, visible unity of the Church as the goal of the Ecumenical Movement;
  2. encourages the further explication of the characteristics which belong to the full, visible unity of the Church (described variously as the goal, the marks, or the portrait of visible unity); and
  3. recognises that the process of moving towards full, visible unity may entail temporary anomalies, and believes that some anomalies may be bearable when there is an agreed goal of visible unity, but that there should always be an impetus towards their resolution and, thus, towards the removal of the principal anomaly of disunity.
