Our Core Commitments
Faithfulness to God and His Word. 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. Christian sociology, psychology and counseling offer important principles that, when used in submission to biblical truth, can assist us in preventing, resolving and healing unhealthy conflicts among people.
Centrality of Christ. Genuine peace between people can be found only through the powerful working of God through Jesus Christ. Therefore, we 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.
Responsibility of the Church. 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 and reconciliation.
Spiritual Renewal. 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.
Cooperation with Others. By working together with others, we promote spiritual unity and cooperation among Bible believing, Christ centered individuals and churches. We also encourage peacemaking ministry through regional and international networking.
Serving the Northeast and Southern California. New England and the Northeastern U.S. have 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 the Northeast U.S. plus Southern California.
Cross Cultural Ministry. We strive to respect the distinctives of every person and culture while promoting the deeper identity possible for people through Christ and his Word. 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.
