“True evangelical faith, cannot lie dormant, it clothes the naked, it feeds the hungry, it comforts the sorrowful, it shelters the destitute, it serves those that harm it, it binds up that which is wounded, it has become all things to all creatures.

Menno Simons

The Nigerian Anabaptist Peace Center is a place where people who have experienced trauma and loss as a result of religious violence can find HELP, HEALTH, and HOPE.

The Peace Center exists to promote healing and reconciliation, and to bring encouragement and guidance to those affected by violence and persecution by sharing the GOOD NEWS OF JESUS CHRIST. We do this by:

  • ·Training leaders in the Anabaptist perspective which leads to planting Anabaptist peace churches that emphasize the importance of becoming Peacemakers. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” (Matthew 5:9)
  • Discipling young adults through sports as a means of teaching conflict resolution and bridge-building. “All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation…..” (2 Cor. 5:18-20).
  • Serving God by serving others, including supporting widows and orphans of pastors who have been killed for their beliefs, helping pastors who have retired with limited resources, and similar programs. “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”   (1 Peter 4:10)

The Center is intended to be a self-sustaining ministry run by Nigerians for Nigerians.

Motto: Peace, Justice, and Reconciliation.

“Creating praise on the lips of the mourners… Peace, peace, to those far and near,” says the Lord. “And I will heal them.” Isaiah 57:19
