"13. The emergence of the Church can be explained only in the light of faith in Jesus raised to life: the Church of Jesus Christ as the community of those who have committed themselves to the cause of Jesus Christ and bear witness to it as hope for all men."
Hans Küng

Who cares if a church has a spire or a dome?
Who cares if the primate is in Moscow or Rome?

The people who follow Christ,
Come together to worship and serve.
That is the church of Christ.

Who cares if the clergy wear black or satin?
Who cares if the language is Dutch or Latin?

The church is where we are;
The church is all over the world.
That is the church of Christ.

Who cares if the priest is a man or a woman?
Who cares if the line from Peter is broken?

The leaders serve the people;
The people serve each other.
That is the church of Christ.
