Mission Statement

The New Jersey Council of Churches is a community of Christian communions that seeks ways to do together what we are not able to do separately. This includes recognition of outreach, ministry, programs and assisting in identification of areas of commonality in theological traditions which might provide a foundation for shared life and witness.

The specific mission of the Council is to work within this community engaging society and its culture through ministries of compassion and justice. Based on areas of commonality and discerned societal needs, the Council may suggest specific information to be distributed throughout this community and/or action to be taken by its members.

 The Council, by vote of the Board or the Steering Committee, may address concerns which are consistent with its purpose but not as an obligation on individual member communions.
