Faithfulness to God and His Word
We are committed to God's message as declared in the inspired
and inerrant Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. We
believe that God's Word is fully authoritative and sufficient
for all of life and that his commands and promises apply to
every conflict Christians may encounter. We believe that the
fields of Christian sociology, psychology and counseling offer
important principles, which, when used in submission to biblical
truth, can assist us in preventing, resolving and healing
unhealthy conflicts among people.
Centrality of Christ
We believe that genuine peace between people may be found
only through the powerful working of God through Jesus Christ.
Therefore we are committed to encourage people to trust in
Christ, follow God's Word and draw upon the power of his Holy
Spirit to find forgiveness and reconciliation with others.
We believe God's Word presents peacemaking as an essential
ministry for all Christians and local churches, not just for
professional mediators, lawyers and counselors. Therefore,
we are committed to train and equip Christians and churches
to fulfill God's call to promote peace through biblical justice
We believe spiritual renewal in our society depends upon the
individual and corporate renewal of God's people as they come
to repentance, confession, forgiveness and reconciliation
with one another. We believe that this will open the way for
God-initiated spiritual awakening in our society as a whole.
Therefore we are committed to promote spiritual renewal among
Christians in their relationships, families, churches and
Cooperation with others
We are committed to work together with others to promote spiritual
unity and cooperation among Bible believing, Christ centered
individuals and churches. Therefore we seek to help Christians
model the unity within the Triune Godhead to convince a lost
world of His saving love. We also seek to encourage and catalyze
peacemaking ministry through regional and international networking.
Expanding from the Northeast
to California and the West
We believe that New England and the Northeastern U.S. are
regions with a unique heritage of history, geography, tradition
and culture that give them a special significance for sparking
spiritual renewal in our nation. We remain committed
to our peacemaking efforts in these regions while
we expand our outreach into California and the West.
We are committed to respecting the distinctives of every person
and culture while promoting the deeper identity possible for
people through Christ and his Word. Therefore, we promote
biblical peacemaking across the barriers of gender, ethnicity,
culture and race.
Excellence and creativity
We are committed to honor our great God through ministry that
is excellent in quality and creative in style.
