Role of Resolutions
The development of resolutions, especially church statements, must seek to follow our ecclesiology. We believe the church exists at the congregational, area conference and national conference levels. While each person is responsible for developing and maintaining a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, our understandings of the revelation of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are refined and tested by the community of believers on the three levels of our church. This seminar will explore the current role resolutions play in MC USA and hope we might shape the resolution process in the future.

La elaboración de las resoluciones, en especial de las declaraciones de la iglesia, debe buscar la coherencia con nuestra eclesiología. Creemos que la iglesia existe a nivel de la congregación, de la conferencia regional y de la conferencia nacional. Mientras que cada persona se responsabiliza de desarrollar y sostener una relación personal con Jesucristo, nuestras comprensiones de la revelación de Jesucristo y del Espíritu Santo son pulidas y comprobadas por la comunidad de creyentes en los tres niveles de nuestra iglesia. Este seminario explorará el rol que las resoluciones actuales cumplen en la Iglesia Menonita de EE. UU (MC USA por sus siglas en inglés) y espera que podamos ayudar a moldear el proceso de las resoluciones en el futuro.
Se ofrecerá servicio de intérprete al español.
