The National Executive Council (Board) of Episcopal Peace Fellowship states our purpose:
The Episcopal Peace Fellowship is an inclusive community rooted in active love. Her members endeavor to follow Jesus into the world, bearing witness to injustice, while striving for justice, and prayerfully expecting that peace will follow. We offer resources to help form human beings who understand that our call to be Christ’s hands and feet compels us to live into our Baptismal promise to strive for justice and peace, and respect the dignity of every person. We cannot imagine our lives as followers of Christ without doing the work of social justice advocacy. We are about using our prophetic voices for radical peacemaking. Our places are marked by our dedication to non-violence, and to creating peace even with those with whom we deeply disagree. Our movement is ever toward the immovable cornerstone, Jesus, who can always be found standing beside the other and the stranger, the oppressed, the marginalized, the disenfranchised, the victims of a broken justice system, the displaced, and those who are alone or who have lost hope.
