What Does This Mean?

I saw this in a Zenit article. It's a short bit about an Orthodox delegation discussing the East's view of ecclesiology. See here:

Archbishop Chrysostomos II of Cyprus affirmed that "Orthodox theology is primarily ecclesiological..."

He underlined the Orthodox interpretation of ecclesiology, which is not confessional, but rather stresses the existential experience of the church.

I wonder how many Orthodox would agree with this. Of the ones I know, absolutely none. Given the emphasis the East places on the Creeds of old, I'm not sure how this guy can classify their ecclesiology as "not confessional." Frankly, I don't even know what this existential experience stuff is supposed to mean.

Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?
