Commitment to Peacemaking

Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church has been committed to peacemaking since the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program was initiated in the 1980’s. The ministry engages in advocating for social, environmental and economic justice, supporting servant leaders and equipping Presbyterians for discipleship following Jesus.

The General Assembly has affirmed in Peacemaking: The Believers’ Calling that God’s peace giving is central to the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The document states that:

  • The Church is faithful to Christ when it is engaged in peacemaking.
  • The Church is obedient to Christ when it nurtures and equips God’s people as peacemakers.
  • The Church bears witness to Christ when it nurtures the moral life of the nation for the sake of peace in the world.
