We believe in one God, a good and just God ï¿½ the Creator of the whole universe and of humanity. We believe that God created us in His image and likeness, and that everyoneï¿½s dignity is derived from the dignity of the Almighty God.
We hear the cry of hope of the suffering masses. We ask God to bless His children by giving them more knowledge, wisdom, understanding and power in order to contribute effectively in establishing and developing a just and peaceful world.
Furthermore, we believe that peace, justice and empowerment, and especially women and youth empowerment are in the interest of all peoples of the world.
We pray God to inspire us all particularly our leaders and partners to find the way of peace, justice, empowerment and dignity unto satisfactory development of our societies.
