Just Peace Covenant

This proposal was read at the September Church Council meeting and was adopted by a unanimous vote at the October Church Council meeting.


At Plymouth Church we resolve to grow in love of God and neighbor as a Just Peace congregation, affirm our intention to seek justice and peace in every sphere of life, and recognize there can be no true peace without justice for all. The scriptures speak plainly of God’s call for justice. We believe that by the grace of God and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, peace sustained by justice is possible.

We seek Just Peace
In the community—so that all may live free from fear.
With the earth—so that all life is sustained.
In the marketplace—so that all may live with dignity.
Among the nations—so that all lives are protected.

We affirm that living as a Just Peace church is a continually evolving and intentional process, rather than the assumption of a permanent status.
