We believe that God’s good news commits us to the following Road Map as we serve Jesus Christ in our current context within the Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI):
1. We affirm that the church is both reformed, and always being reformed.
We therefore pray and work for the full restoration of our formal relationships with both the Church of Scotland and the United Reformed Church.
2. We affirm that God models a unity-in-diversity in which all are called to life in the church.
We therefore pray and work for a church in which none who respond to that call are excluded on the basis of age, class, colour, ethnicity, gender or sexual identity.
3 We affirm that God calls women and men to all the ministries of the church.
We therefore pray and work for the unequivocal embrace of our mutual vocation in which all serve Christ with equal authority.
4 We affirm that God calls us to a life of faith seeking understanding.
We therefore pray and work for a growing engagement with a variety of approaches to reading the Bible, doing theology, and addressing ethical questions.
5 We affirm the Reformed insistence on church government that is transparent and accountable.
We therefore pray and work for the kind of structures, leadership, and ethos which will reflect that imperative.
6 We affirm that God’s love for the world takes shape in justice, peace and integrity of creation.
We therefore pray and work for a hope-filled public witness that is grounded in the gospel and anticipates God’s new creation.
7 Finally, we affirm that the Holy Spirit transforms individual lives and brings healing to the community of the church.
We therefore pray and work for a Presbyterian Church in Ireland in which a lively diversity is nurtured, held in Christ and bears the fruits of the Spirit.
