Peace & Justice Ministries

IMG00250Community of Christ is continually seeking out ways in which to live out Jesus Christ’s Shalom. One of our Enduring Principles is Pursuit of Peace.

Pursuit of Peace (Shalom)
  • God wants shalom (justice, reconciliation, well-being, wholeness, and peace) for all of creation.
  • Jesus Christ, the embodiment of God’s shalom (peace), reveals the meaning of God’s peace in all aspects of life.
  • The vision of Zion is to promote God’s reign on earth, as proclaimed by Jesus Christ, through the leavening influence of just and peaceful communities.
  • We courageously and generously share the peace of Jesus Christ with others.

  • We celebrate God’s peace wherever it appears or is being pursued by people of good will.
