The article describes the views on the preconditions and possibilities of the unity of the Church as presented at the World Missionary Conference held in Edinburgh, 1910. One of the Commissions at the Conference concentrated specifically on ecumenical questions and on the questions which emphasize the unity among Christians. They were regarded important issues when the missionary agencies worked for the establishment of the one church of Christ in the whole world and especially in the non-Christian countries. It was felt that the duty of Christians was to evangelize the whole world and therefore unity was interpreted to be an instrument for that cause. Separated churches and the division of the Christian church were seen as a hindrance in Christian witness. In the article there is a closer look at the unity models as drafted by the participants. The work on these models continued for several decades in the international ecumenical movement.
