Five Peacemaking Affirmations

These five affirmations were approved by the 22nd General Assembly (2016) to guide the peacemaking work of the Presbyterian Church (USA). They celebrate and build upon the foundational document “Peacemaking the Believers’ Calling,” that initiated the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program and the annual Peace and Global Witness Offering. The Five Affirmations also concluded a 6-year denomination-wide Peace Discernment Process. The report of the Peace Discernment Steering Team, “Risking Peace,” is also available.
