8th assembly/50th anniversary

eighth assembly of the
world council of churches
Harare, Zimbabwe, 3 - 14 December 1998

Because Christ
has chosen us to be friends,
because Christ
has appointed us to bear fruit that will last,
because Christ
has commanded us to love one another;
with God's help we are confident to say:

We intend
to stay together

We respond to the prayer of Jesus Christ that all may be one in order that the world may believe.

We are restless
to grow together in unity
