Faith in Action
Quaker values are lived rather than written. These values, or testimonies as we call them, lead Quakers to translate their faith into action by working locally and globally for social justice, to support peacemakers and care for the environment.
what quakers believe
Our focus is on our experience rather than written statements of belief. Our sense of community does not depend on professing identical beliefs, but from worshipping, sharing and working together.
Our religious experience leads us to place special value on truth, equality, simplicity, peace and environmental sustainability. Quakers call these values 'testimonies'.
Quakers believe there is 'that of God in everyone’ and therefore we try to treat everyone as equals regardless of sexuality, race, ethnicity, age, religion, social status or intellect.
a lived faith
Our testimonies encourage us to work for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. It's not always easy to live this way, but as Quakers we try to encourage each other to keep trying.
