Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Partnerships

Interreligious Relations

The Episcopal Church engages in dialogue with people of numerous faiths and religious traditions, striving to act in God’s name for the reconciliation of the world.
The 1988 Lambeth Conference, a gathering of Anglican Bishops and ecumenical partners, commended: "dialogue with people of other faiths as part of Christian discipleship and mission, with the understanding that…dialogue depends upon mutual understanding, mutual respect and mutual trust…”
These dialogues are ongoing and have produced remarkable understanding between the Episcopal Church and other traditions, helping us grow in mutual respect and trust. We also work with a variety of interreligious organizations, promoting engagement and cooperation with different traditions in areas of common interest, such as peace and justice.
