We strongly affirm this beautiful, old theological term, and are committed to partnership and networks in ministry. We believe it takes the whole family of God to embrace the whole faith of God, and are scandalized by separations, bigotry, elitism, and destructive competition. The Cross transcends race, gender, and denominations; the power of the Gospel is in linking arms rather than pointing fingers. And so we will engage people of faith to work with people of good will for the well-being of the city.
We may be called to stand with those with whom we may only partially agree on matters of faith so as to affect a Christian presence in society. The Knoxville Leadership Foundation will work to bring together urban and suburban, Protestant and Catholic, mainline and evangelical as well as Anglos and non-Anglos.
