VISION, MISSION AND VALUES
The vision of the Evangelical Chapter of FRD is to create a movement of Jesus-shaped multi-faith engagement within Evangelicalism.
The mission of the Evangelical Chapter of FRD is to help Evangelicals practice a neighborhood theology of multi-faith engagement that embraces the Christian practices of love of neighbor and enemy, and hospitality while maintaining faithfulness to evangelical convictions.
The Chapter is Evangelical, and is committed to the doctrinal and cultural elements that define this Christian movement. (See the doctrinal statement information below.)
2. Christ’s Example
The Chapter follows the example of Christ in encounters with other religions (John 4:1-26).
3. Love of Neighbor and Enemy
The Chapter practices the love of neighbors and enemy love in the context of other religions (Luke 10:25-37).
4. Truth and Respect
The Chapter maintains a commitment to truth and respect in the way it engages those in other religions (1 Peter 3:15-16).
The Chapter helps evangelicals rediscover and apply the ancient Christian practice of hospitality to the marginalized in the context of other religions (Matthew 9:10-13).
6. Peacemaking and Persuasion
The Chapter embraces both sharing the gospel persuasively and work toward peacemaking as important Christian activities (Mathew 5:9; Romans 12:18).
The Evangelical Chapter of FRD resonates with statements of faith as expressed in the Capetown Commitment of the Lausanne Movement.
