themselves as children of God;
human beings in general; and
To encourage fellowship involvements
In addition, we hope not only to help people maintain faith itself, and the values and virtues that faith upholds, but also to help people maintain spiritual INVOLVEMENTS.
Faith itself calls for, and encourages, SOME form of social involvement. Spiritual fellowship, and the opportunity it offers us to put faith into ACTION in practical and cooperative ways, has stabilizing and healthy effects. Generally, such involvement enhances and resonates faith.
Some people in faith crisis will be able to make peace with their current church or community. Others will have already broken organizational ties, but can be encouraged to find new social expressions for their faith. Still others will chose to continue their spiritual quest on their own for now. Whatever an individual feels is the right choice, we will support it. In every instance, our purpose is the same: to protect the essential elements of personal faith, so that individuals can either reconcile with their current organizational affiliations, or move on with their faith intact.
