Resolution III.22

Discipleship

This Conference -

  1. affirms our trust in the power of God's Spirit to ensure that all persons are made full disciples and equally members of the Body of Christ and the people or laos of God, by their baptism;
  2. while recognising the necessity of the ordained ministry and special responsibilities which are given to various members of the Body, also recognises that all the baptised share in the common priesthood of the Church;
  3. notes that the life, practice, polity and liturgy of churches everywhere should exemplify this understanding of our community and common life; and
  4. affirms that in baptism all are called to personal commitment to Jesus Christ and should be given education and opportunity for ministries which include worship, witness, service and acts of forgiveness and reconciliation in the setting of their daily life and work.
