"Blessed are those who make peace, for they will be called children of God" - Jesus
We believe that peace is the will of God. God is the ultimate restorer, fixing what is broken and overcoming evil with good. Though we were once God's enemies, God reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ, breaking down the wall of hostility. As Christians we are called to model God's love for us to others.We beieve that violence and war are contrary to the will of God. As the church of Jesus Christ, we see our role to:
- Practice reconciliation with each other.
- Teach conflict resolution skills
- Support alternative solutions to war and those who choose to obstain from war. See more at MCC's Conscientious Objection page.
