Our Values

  • Faith: The goal and grounding of all that we do is our shared faith in Jesus Christ; we seek to be faithful to God and committed to our journey together.
  • Holiness: Willing to be opened and changed by God as we connect with each other and meet together in the Lord; experiencing God’s holiness as we spend time together in prayer and seeking to be reconciled in Christ.
  • Respect: Respecting and seeking to understand each other’s beliefs; we are aware of our diversity while recognising the presence of Christ in each other as we seek to understand the fullness of God’s revelation for the world.
  • Hope: Hoping in Christ and living in the power of the Holy Spirit sustaining us and fuelling our courage; we are courageous in our vision and mission having the strength together to fulfil our reason to be.
  • Witness: Witnessing to God’s kingdom of justice, peace and reconciliation through word and action; and to our common discipleship in the way we live and work together; and also, as we listen to the world in which we live and serve.

Furthermore, CIRDE has taken up the cause of environmental peacebuilding, based on the care for our common home (Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si’”) as connector projects between the different faiths and religions in Kenya.
