The Athens Affirmation

State of Europe Forum in Athens
June 16, 2014

The Athens Affirmation affirms that there is hope for Europe, and that Europe should be deeply rooted in Christian values.

It also underscores that "‘issues challenging European union and true community today, such as racism, nationalism, the rise of Islam, the influx of refugees, and the environment, can only be sufficiently responded to from a biblical perspective, which transcends race, nation and culture, offers a secure hope allowing for tolerance to rival worldviews, calls God's people to hospitality and compassion, and requires wise stewardship of earth's resources".
