The World Council of Churches (WCC) held its first meeting in 1948. It is a fellowship of over 120 Protestant, Anglican, Orthodox and Old Catholic churches from some 90 countries throughout the world. Total membership: 400 million.

The first goal of the ecumenical movement spearheaded by the WCC is to bring all churches into one visible organization. The ultimate goal of the movement is to bring all religions together. The WCC now holds dialogues on "peace" with representatives of 1.5 billion people on earth.
