The Evangelical Church in the Rhineland aims to be a “missionary church of the people". A Synod resolution relating to this says: “we need to find a convincing style of language for a modern society that is shaped by science and technology”. We can no longer reach all the people in the same way using one and the same form of language.
The promoting of ecumenical fellowship among the churches is of the highest significance for the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland and is written into Article 1 of the Church constitution. And this is lived out in intensive ways – for example in ecumenical partnerships between local churches, church districts and at the regional level.
