This article attempts to demonstrate how to develop a basis not only for a theological but also an ecclesiological potential for pluralism in the Church, and at the same time offer some guidelines in taking a step away from the usual Church practices. Having said this, the first part of this article suggests the potential for pluralism, which is derived from the very mystery of the Church. The four fundamental ecclesiastical principles as analysed and derived from the New Testament texts and the documents of the Second Vatican Council are: the Church as a sacrament of salvation; the Church as a journeying People of God; the Church as the Body of Christ: and Church as »koinonia«. The question is posed as to the significance of these four principles in relation to the possibility of pluralism in the Church. Taking into account the specific New Testament context in which the terms: mystery, the People of God, the Body of Christ, charism, and 'koinonia' are used, it becomes possible then to speak of a democratisation of the Church.
The second part of this article endeavours to derive from the ecclesiastical indicative, at least in some terms, an ecclesiastical imperative or some guidelines and suggestions how ecclesiastical activity may be directed so as to actualise pluralism within the Church. Starting from notion of 'ecclesiology - community', the Church can arrive at a more different concept for pluralism within itself and affirm it role as a place of institutional freedom in a pluralistic context. Thereafter, two different urgent problems are highlight between the local Church and the Universal Church. The analysis of these problems emphasises some essential ecclesiastical elements that become evident of internal ecclesiological pluralism: the spirit of dialogue, 'sensusfidelium', the idea of collegiality, Catholicity, synodal authority, the principle of subsidiarity, inculturation of faith.
Constituting draws a conclusion that in the early stages of the Church there existed a theological, ecclesiastical, liturgical and disciplinary pluralism. The final criterion for unity and plurality is Jesus Christ.
