Const.: GC 34, Decree 4: “Our Mission and Culture”, par. 28.8

We commit ourselves to the creation of genuinely “local churches” which can contribute to the richness of the universal communion of the church of Christ. We will also look for ways of creating indigenous theology, liturgy and spirituality, and of promoting the right and freedom of peoples to encounter the Gospel without being alienated from their culture.
