SL09376 Panel: The Enduring Principles—a 21st-century Approach to the Restoration’s Call

The Community of Christ has a Christian foundation and Restoration heritage. “In faithful response to [this] heritage and continuing experience with God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit, we endeavor to uphold the following enduring principles as essential components of church identity and mission”: Grace and Generosity; Sacredness of Creation; Continuing Revelation; Worth of All Persons; All Are Called; Responsible Choices; Pursuit of Peace (Shalom); Unity in Diversity; and, Blessings of Community. This panel will discuss these affirmations which shape Community of Christ’s identity, mission, and message, and which frame our beliefs and expression of Christianity and the Restoration in the 21st Century.
