STATEMENT 10

ON THE WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES
AND THE PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT

Meeting at the 17th World Congress of the ICCC held at the 21st Century Youth Training Centre, belonging to the Glory Bible Presbyterian Church of Seoul, Korea and taking place from June 8-14, 2005

WHEREAS:
The World Council of Churches (WCC) is using great efforts to seduce the Pentecostal Churches with the purpose to incorporate them into the ecumenical movement and to eventually bring them back into the Roman Catholic fold.

WHEREAS:
The majority of the Pentecostal Churches reject ecumenism and are not willing to return to the yoke of the Roman Catholic Church, and

WHEREAS:
The Pentecostal Churches cannot join the ICCC, due to the fact that theologically they cannot accept the Bible as the only rule of faith and practice.

WHEREAS:
There is evidence that some true believers are in the Pentecostal Churches, and

WHEREAS:
The opposition to the WCC and its Ecumenical Movement require the cooperation of those who refuse it.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
(A) That we should exhort the Pentecostal Churches in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they should come together in the common front against ecumenism.

(B) Let us offer help to the Pentecostal Churches that want to organize to resist the seduction of the WCC, and

(C) Exhort all members to pray that the Lord would raise up Pentecostal leaders that are needed to unite its churches in an association that can resist effectively the seduction of the WCC.
