Finnish Ecumenical Council

Founded in 1917 as the Finnish Council, a branch of the World Alliance for Promoting International Fellowship through the Churches. In 1933 the organization became the Ecumenical Council of Finland and in 1963 the Finnish Ecumenical Council.

Basis: Members of the council are churches and Christian communities in Finland, who confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the scriptures and therefore seek to fulfil together their common calling to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Finnish Ecumenical Council is affiliated with the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism of the World Council of Churches.
