- Does Interchurch mean Interfaith?
No. The term ‘interchurch’ is intra-Christian; that is, it refers to Christian relations. It refers to relations between and among churches, which are represented by their members who speak on their behalf. Broadly speaking, the term ‘interchurch’ means ‘ecumenical’. The term ‘interfaith’ refers to relations between and among religions; that is, between and among the world’s living faiths and religious traditions. Broadly speaking, the term ‘interfaith’ is interchangeable with the term ‘interreligious’. ‘Interreligious’ is preferred by some religious bodies which describe their self-understanding in terms of a religious tradition or a religious philosophy rather than a religion or a faith.
