Beginning in the early 1980s, the Mennonite World Conference (M.W.C.) entered into international bilateral dialogue with five world communions: the World Alliance of Reformed Churches; the Baptist World Alliance, the Lutheran World Federation (L.W.F.), the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and the Catholic Church.
Out of bilateral dialogues, which the Mennonite World Conference had with the Roman Catholic Church (1) and with the Lutheran World Federation, (2) the idea was born to revisit together the Anabaptist dissent, focusing on the theology and practice of Christian baptism.
