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.
