Chapter Summary

This chapter goes on to make the qualification, typical of such confessional statements, that this &t;one&t; church is the church &t;invisible. It has always been a temptation of the churches, not only in the Reformed tradition, to content themselves with believing that the unity of the church is an attribute of the invisible church, with the implicit corollary that the unity of the visible church is an entirely secondary matter. The chapter argues that, with some important qualifications, some such correspondence does exist; furthermore, that it has implications for seeking a greater visible expression of the unity of the churches. The 9th Assembly of the World Council of Churches (Porto Allegre, 2006) describes the "oneness" of the church as "an image of the unity of the Triune God in the communion of the divine Persons.
