Theological Framework

Theological Framework That Guides PROCMURA's Work

As a Christian organisation that stretches a hand of friendship to the Muslim communities, PROCMURA relates with Muslims from its faith in the triune God in whom we “live and move and have our being” (Acts 17: 28) and not in spite of that faith.

The biblical foundation that informs PROCMURA’s theology of Christian-Muslim relations comes in its stated belief that Christian witness is part of Christian identity and, therefore, obligatory, and that the Christian vocation of working for peace and peaceful co-existence is also mandatory. For Jesus the Christ who said “…you are my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8) is the same Jesus who is referred to in Christian tradition as the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6) and who on ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ said to his disciples “Blessed are the peace makers for they shall be called Children of God” (Matthew 5: 9).

It is important to emphasise that as a Christian organisation, PROCMURA’s commitment to promoting good neighbourliness, justice, peace, reconciliation, development and care for the environment together with Muslims rest on its understanding of Incarnational Theology which sees life before death (as demonstrated by the presence of Christ with us) as of importance (even if transitory) as life after death.
