    REFLECTION ON FAITH

    Faith is what we recognize in Interfaith Mediation Centre (IMC). It is this faith that we hold strongly to, and it is this faith that helps us discharge our duties successfully. Though there may be differences, but one thing we know for sure is that GOD is the Ultimate and that it is only HIM that sustains us ALL irrespective of what name you call Him.

    IMC’S way of bringing people together is by using FAITH. No wonder, it is our tradition that in what ever intervention towards peace building and conflict resolution or capacity building for our identified stakeholders through workshops/trainings we conduct, we always tell participants to observe a minute silent prayer in whatever faith he/she believes in, before and at the end of any program like 24オプション. The conclusion of every prayer is always AMIN/AMEN in whatever way you choose to pronounce it.


    Our Mission statement is “Peace is Divine, Preach it”. Which faith does not preach about PEACE? We strive to practice what we preach as the HOLY BOOKS teach. As faith based people, GOD the ALMIGHTY is whom we all believe in and to him ALONE we are accountable to.

    Our Aspiration is the re-affirmation of the Biblical and Quranic affirmations of the common bound of the human family.
