Our Objectives are set out in
Our founding document - "The Roman Declaration"
The Manifesto of the International Movement We Are Church
that it is in the local Church that the message of Jesus takes
shape and that local people are responsible for its transmission and
Our endeavour to build a 'community of communities' strengthens us to build the realm of God and Jesus Christ.
IMWAC is a network of independent and autonomous groups, each
representing a different culture where Catholic Christians are
endeavouring to live out the message of Jesus Christ.
Groups relate to one another as brothers and sisters without 'hierarchy'
IMWAC does not have individual members.
In principle, groups operate nationwide but in some countries cultural differences may allow more than one We Are Church group.
Local groups may have more objectives that those listed in the
Roman Declaration or Manifesto, but international cooperation and
collaboration is concentrated upon them.
Outline of Organisation
Local groups are responsible for their own actions
To promote international cooperation each local group is invited to nominate two representatives to the IMWAC Council.
