NATIONAL NETWORK

Though PeaceBuilders Community, Inc. is a mission organization sent by Mennonite Church Canada, one of our primary mandates is to relate and work with national bodies whose respective visions and missions resonate with ours.

 

PBCI is a Christian peace building mission affiliated with a national church — the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches.

PCEC is the largest network of denominations, churches, mission groups and para-church organizations nationwide, presenting a distinctly evangelical voice and presence to our government and other publics, and engaging in ministries that help the poor and needy to become economically self-reliant and harmoniously related with God.

 

PBCI belongs to a small Christian denomination in the Philippines called Integrated Mennonite Church. IMC belongs to a global Anabaptist family of historic peace churches based on Peace Theology. Jesus is the centre of our faith. Community is the centre of our life. Reconciliation is the centre of our work.

 

Through our PCEC membership, PBCI is an active part of the Philippine Ecumenical Peace Platform (PEPP).

PEPP is composed of members from the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC), Catholic Bishop’s Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Ecumenical Bishop’s Forum (EBF), National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP), and the Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP).

The purpose of the PEPP is to have a compelling united voice of Church leaders, clergy and laity that will push GRP and NDFP into a continuing substantive peace dialogue. The PEPP shall articulate the urgent call for the resumption of the peace talks between the two parties focused on providing concrete and comprehensive solutions to the primary causes of the problems and renewed by the visions of a just peace which resonates among the various religious communities.

 

Coffee For Peace (CFP) is the sister organization of the PeaceBuilders Community, Inc. (PBCI). CFP is a community of conscientious individuals who are passionate to spouse business for profit and address social issues that concerns our farmers, our environment, and the peace situation in our land by advocating Fair Trade in the coffee industry. CFP sees Fair Trade as a business approach to achieve justice and peace in our society and in our environment.
