We believe in one holy, universal Christian Church, the communion of saints called from the entire human family.
— from the Belhar Confession
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
— Matthew 28:18-20 (NRSV)
