Well, okay. I went to the site and found this:

"Statement of Faith

'The National Council of Churches is a community of Christian communions, which, in response to the gospel as revealed in the Scriptures, confess Jesus Christ, the incarnate Word of God, as Savior and Lord.

These communions covenant with one another to manifest ever more fully the unity of the Church.

Relying upon the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, the communions come together as the Council in common mission, serving in all creation to the glory of God.'

--from the Preamble to the NCC Constitution."

I could not retain the original formatting, which had this rather concise statement blocked out in poetic feet (I think that was the idea).

I guess I was looking for something a little more solid, like something really Trinitarian? Maybe I'm wrong, but do you think the NCC really believes that Jesus Christ is the sole Way, the Truth and the Life?

Hi - found this essay via the Conservative Site for Peace.

You said, "But look high and low in the NCC for any creedal statement. "

There is a statement of faith on the NCC pages: click on "about" and then "statement of faith".

It may not be to the liking of any Orthodox, but it's there.
