The purpose of this research has been to examine recent expressions about the Church, especially literature prepared for and issuing from the first assembly of the World Council of Churches, in order to discover a doctrine of the Church which may be offered to all Christians for the furtherance of unity. A growing sense of the importance of the doctrine of the Church has resulted from emphasis on the social nature of religious knowledge, the modern missionary movement, and the twentieth-century ecumenical movement.
