“Conflict Resolution”

Our Stated Policy:
"I will speak words of blessings to others and refuse to speak or hear anything negative about another person unless they are present to defend themselves."
The obvious goal of conflict resolution is to resolve the conflict.

The 3-Legged Stool of Conflict Resolution:
1. Clarity: We utilize a moral standard, which is the Word of God.
2. Unity: We seek harmony and consider the greater good under the banner of truth.
3. Integrity: We resolve to be honest and go where the truth leads us.
Grace is God's unmerited favor displayed clearly in the Gospel.

Christians should not…
IGNORE the Gospel. (Live as though adherence to the moral law makes us acceptable to God.)
ABUSE the Gospel. (Live as if sin is something we confess, but don't avoid.)
HIJACK the Gospel. (Live out and impose our convictions on others.)

Christians should…
CELEBRATE & DEFEND the Gospel. (Live understanding our unique role in the Church of God.)
