Our call is to encourage one another to take seriously Christ's call to participate in Christ's nonviolent work of love, peace, and justice in the world. Our mission is to strengthen the PC(USA)'s witness and commitment to nonviolence by supporting, training and developing opportunities for direct action for individual Presbyterians and their congregations. As we work to strengthen our witness, we are clear that we do not intend to replace local congregations, but instead intend to revive their ability to live a vibrant witness to the power of the gospel. We now broaden that understanding by recognizing the many ways across the church to live in Christian community outside of traditional congregational life. We desire to connect with and support intentional peace communities involved in inspiring peace work across the country.
