Commitment to this basis of faith does not mean a uniformity of belief that excludes different points of view on areas that are not part of this foundation statement. It is recognized that Partners come from churches of many denominations and emphases, but the points on which they differ are less important than those on which they are united. Each Partner is committed to the principle of Philippians. 2:5-8. Loyalty to the Lord Jesus Christ demands repudiation of both heresy and schism. Thus Partners are committed to an attitude of servanthood as they join together in a Fellowship drawn from, and in ministry with, many denominations of the Christian Church.
