To become globally recognized leaders in building beloved community
Four characteristics of a beloved community have been identified.
- Poverty, hunger, and homelessness are not tolerated because standards of human decency do not allow them.
- Racism and all forms of discrimination, bigotry and prejudice are replaced by an all-inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood.
- Disputes will be resolved by peaceful conflict-resolution and reconciliation of adversaries, instead of force.
- Alleviation of economic inequity and the achievement of economic justice
To strengthen and enhance our congregations’ capabilities to meet human needs, participate in the public forum, and promote religious, racial and cultural harmony.
