World Evangelical Alliance to support pact
Efforts to establish a code of conduct to govern Christian churches’ missionary and evangelism efforts—especially those aimed at other Christians—took a major step forward recently when the World Evangelical Alliance indicated that it would support such a pact.

“We see this as a major step forward on the way to getting the code agreed on among organizations representing a huge body of Christians,” said Juan Michel, a spokesperson for the World Council of Churches, which is heading up the project along with the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.

The code, expected to be finalized in 2010, would be directed at both inter-Christian evangelism and Christian mission to those outside the faith.
