Statement on the Ecumenical Councils

 

The Catholic Apostolic Church of Antioch affirms the Seven Ecumenical Councils of Christianity as authentic and valid historical expressions of our Christian response to the urgings of the Holy Spirit. We acknowledge that our human understanding involves an incomplete intellectual grasp of the Divine Mystery, so we make this affirmation consistent with the divine gift of individual conscience, which both authorizes and requires our ongoing informed interpretation and discernment in spiritual matters.
