WE ARE CHRISTIAN
We acknowledge one God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In Jesus Christ the love, mercy and grace of God are made known to us and all people. From this overflowing abundance of God's love we find our call to sense the needy and the spirit of Christ.
We proclaim together, "Jesus lived, died, and rose again. Jesus is Lord." We desire him to be central in our individual and corporate life.
We seek to follow him -- in his identification with the poor, the powerless, the afflicted, the oppressed, the marginalized; in his special concern for children; in his respect for the dignity bestowed by God on women equally with men; in his challenge to unjust attitudes and systems; in his call to share resources with each other; in his love for all people without discrimination or conditions; in his offer of new life through faith in him. From him we derive our holistic understanding of the gospel of the Kingdom of God, which forms the basis of our response to human need. Advocate on behalf of the speechless people, individual and community as well.
Our value is based on Isaiah 61:1 “The spirit of the lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has send me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to opening the prison to those who are bound.”
All people are created equal so there should not be discrimination and all people have right to live their life with dignity and respect.
