A movement for wholeness in a fractured world.
We honor our heritage as a movement for Christian unity by cooperating and partnering with other faith communities to work for bringing about wholeness – healing and justice – in the world. This is what it means to be “deeply ecumenical.” One example is our cooperative work with the United Church of Christ in Global Ministries for the past 25 years and our newer effort to share staff in the area of family ministries.
We also honor the mission of wholeness by staying together in covenant as a witness to the world that even when we disagree we can still make room, welcoming all to the table as Christ has welcomed us. We are not perfect, nor do we have all the answers, but we trust that our journey together with Jesus gives meaning to all of our questions, hopes, and concerns.
Our spiritual ancestors were fond of saying, “unity, not uniformity”.
