Ecumenical Council of Churches in the Slovak Republic

Founded in 1993 (forerunner: the Ecumenical Council of Churches in Czechoslovakia, founded in 1955).

Basis: The Ecumenical Council of Churches in the Slovak Republic is an association of churches which believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and Head of the Church. They perceive their teaching to be rooted in the scriptures and the ecumenical creeds (Apostles' and Nicean Creeds and the Creed of Athanasius). Through their activities, they together or individually strive towards celebrating God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in the world.
