The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program was created in 1980 by action of the General Assembly of the former United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America adopted Peacemaking: The Believers’ Calling.
The work of the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program is guided by three affirmations outlined in Peacemaking: The Believers’ Calling:
- The church is faithful to Jesus Christ when it is engaged in peacemaking.
- The church is obedient to Jesus 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.
