NETWORKS LAUNCH MOVEMENTS
In a network, everyone has a role to play. Everyone has the freedom to live out a shared vision in his or her own context. A network enables both creative variety and rich mutual learning.
We believe that a vibrant network can launch a movement of Christlike friendship with those different than us!
IN FRIENDSHIP TOGETHER WE MOVE TOWARDS CHRIST
The Spirit moves through friendship! A world of cultural and religious diversity is developing in our backyards. When we share our lives with others in relationships of mutual respect, we make visible the love of Christ. This, in turn, leads to opportunities to share the reason for the hope that is in us.
