Organizational Statement of Faith


First Things: Who is my neighbor? Underlying all that we do, both the means and the ends, are teachings such as 'blessed are the peacemakers' and the parable of the Good Samaritan; and the calls to do justice, love mercy, care for widows and orphans, and to walk humbly with God.
