Mission Statement

Abrahamic Alliance International exists to unite Jews, Christians, and Muslims everywhere to cooperate and collaborate in building peace through:

  • Teaching seminars to build mutual respect and better understanding of each other's faith and culture.
  • Helping the poor, suffering and marginalized through local community service.
  • Mentoring peacemakers according to the sacred Scriptures of our respective faith communities.
  • Relieving extreme poverty internationally through generosity, educational empowerment, and compassionate service.

Description

The purpose of Abrahamic Alliance International is to unite Jews, Christians, and Muslims for active peacebuilding and relief of extreme poverty. We are a movement of faithful Jews, Christians and Muslims who are deeply committed to loving the God of our father Abraham with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and loving our neighbor as ourselves.

We envision a world where children of Abraham unite to save lives; where Jews, Christians and Muslims enjoy peaceful coexistence and mutual appreciation as our faith is deepened by meaningful encounters with each other; where understanding, humility and respect replace ignorance, arrogance, and contempt; where diverse yet faithful worshippers of the God of Abraham move beyond dialog to cooperative action, loving our neighbor together until the hungry are fed, the naked are clothed, the sick receive care, and the orphan is raised with love, compassion and generosity. We envision a world where God's faithfulness to bless all nations through Abraham's seed is expressed in wonderfully new and creative ways through Jews, Christians and Muslims striving to obey all that the prophets have spoken.

Abrahamic Alliance International holds the following values to guide all we do:
  • Faith in the God of Abraham, and respect for the monotheistic diversity of religious traditions followed by his children.
  • Love for God shown by an active love for neighbors, seeking always to do unto others what we would have done unto us.
  • Humility enabling us to safely listen and learn from others while remaining firmly grounded in our own faith. We do not arrogantly help others with an illusion of superiority, but humbly acknowledge we will likely receive far more than we give.
  • Forgiveness of those who wrong us, graciously modeling that respect triumphs over disrespect, love over hate, mercy over vengeance, and non-violence over violence.
  • Compassion, benevolence, and mercy, practiced even among those with whom we stridently disagree, because God is compassionate, benevolent, and merciful.
  • Respect for and service to all, friends and enemies, regardless of creed, race, gender, history or political conviction. We seek to understand each other deeply, even as we long to be understood.
  • Cooperation and peaceful coexistence, not relativism, syncretism or universalism. No one is expected to deny or relinquish any exclusive truth claims of our sacred Scriptures.
  • Collaboration to advance the common good, providing a context of compassion to build genuine friendships, rehumanize those often dehumanized by our myopic and disrespectful stereotypes, and demonstrate how diversity need not be feared in our divided and polarized world but can instead catalyze powerful synergy to benefit society for God's great glory.
  • Mutual appreciation, not proselytizing, Judaizing, Christianizing or Islamicizing. While humbly learning from each other in friendly dialogue promotes mutual understanding, respect, and appreciation, comprehending both common ground and difference also equips us to better understand and practice our own faith, thereby helping us become more faithful members of our respective faith communities.
  • Obedience to the clear commands of God in our respective Scriptures regarding how we should live and relate to our neighbor, and humble confession to God and others involved when we fail.
  • Hope that we, guided by our respective Scriptures, can transcend the fear and misinformation which promote gross misunderstanding, disrespect, and contempt for others, even as we anticipate a coming messianic era of universal peace when all suffering and war will cease.
