We act for peace, justice, care for creation, and God’s mission of healing the whole world in cooperation with others who share our vision.

“We are not alone,” goes the familiar opening line of the United Church’s New Creed. As we seek to align ourselves with God’s work of restoration, healing, and reconciliation, the United Church acts for peace, justice, care for creation, and God’s mission of healing the whole world in cooperation with others who share our vision. As we practise love and justice with humility and prayer, we learn how to be faithful co-workers in God’s mission. We call this approach “partnership.”
