National Council of Churches of Christ

National Council of Churches of Christ

Der National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA (NCC, deutsch: Nationaler Kirchenrat der USA) ist ein Zusammenschluss von gegenwärtig (2004) 36 anglikanischen, protestantischen und orthodoxen christlichen Denominationen. Diese sind weitgehend mit der ökumenischen Bewegung innerhalb der Christenheit verbunden und treffen sich jährlich in einer Hauptversammlung sowie mehreren kleineren Treffen eines Exekutivkommittees.

Der Kirchenrat ist Herausgeber zweier Bibelübersetzungen (Revised Standard Version, New Revised Standard Version) und eines regelmäßigen Jahrbuchs der Amerikanischen und Kanadischen Kirchen; er engagiert sich in Friedensfragen und in Fragen Sozialer Gerechtigkeit, weswegen er von einigen eher konservativen christlichen Denominationen als "links" eingestuft wird.

Der NCC wurde 1950 gegründet, seine Vorgänger-Organisation, der Bundeskirchenrat (Federal Council of Churches) im Jahre 1908. Der Kirchenrat hat seinen Sitz in New York.
