oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Reconciliation between ecumenical and evangelical theologies and theologians of mission
When a person confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord, all other Christians must take that confession seriously. Such a confession represents the manifest inworking of the Spirit of God (1 Cor 12:3). And it is a call to receive that person as a brother indeed, and to seek to express with him the oneness for which our Lord prayed (John 17:21-23). This is our ecumenical obligation. Indeed, one measure of our obedience to Christ is the extent to which we reach out and identify ourselves with all those who make up the household of faith, regardless how seriously we may disagree with them on matters of faith and practice.
