Missouri Faith Voices congregations believe that:

  • Every person has inherent worth and sacred dignity.
  • Our pain is interconnected. Race, class, geography, and partisanship have been systematically manipulated in our communities to limit our ability to achieve what our communities need.
  • Policy and public decision-making are moral choices about who we are as people. 
  • Faith leaders and organizations need to build power to shape policy and hold public officials accountable for the common good.

Missouri Faith Voices congregations commit to:

  • Give voice to a public moral narrative through public actions and risk-taking in relationships.
  • Work with other congregations to build relationships and power across divides of faith, race, geography, and politics.
  • Develop their members and people in their outreach ministries to be powerful leaders in public life: people who can tell their story, build strong public relationships, and develop strategies for impact
