From the 1969 statement on the admission of children to communion through the 2012 Huron Statement, the agreed statements of the APLM Council have proven effective at concisely stating the theological rationale behind the centrality of baptism as the foundation for Christian ministry, the primacy of the Eucharist in Christian worship and parish life, the restoration of the catechumenate, the place of the distinctive diaconate in ordained ministry, and the use of expansive language in worship. Below you will find links to the full text of these statements.
