The National Council of Churches is the United States wing of the World Council of Churches and a key part of the Ecumenical Movement. The NCC is known for left-wing advocacy, especially around issues of race, feminism, homosexual issues, immigration, and support for Communist dictators and left-wing revolutionary movements in the Third World.[Citation Needed] They are also known for mainly modernist views on Christian theology (as such, the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination which holds to conservative theology, is not a member).

Along with the Center for Democratic Renewal they were a key player in the black church-burning hoax of the late 1990s.[1]

History

Originally, the National Council of Churches called itself Federal Council of Churches,[2] but changed its name in 1950 when it merged with other left leaning church organizations.[3]

From the beginning, the National Council of Churches was inspired by the Social Gospel.[4]
