"`Mission and evangelism : an ecumenical affirmation' is the product of a long process of consultation among various theological persuasions and different denominational traditions. It sets forth the primary convictions of the ecumenical movement in the area of mission and evangelism. Prepared by the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, it was approved by the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches in 1982 and has been widely distributed among the churches."
