The Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies has a clear Christian identity.  We believe that it is this which enables us to offer hospitality to both Christians and Muslims, as well as to those of other faiths or none.  In this we are following the example of Jesus who was both host and guest for people from all backgrounds and walks of life.

CMCS works on the basis of:

  • The Christian faith in accordance with the historic creeds and reformation confessions
  • Acknowledging the human and divine Jesus as Messiah
  • Accepting the Bible as the trustworthy and final authority

Our vision is:

Wisdom and hope in Christian-Muslim relations through transformed minds

For us, this vision cannot be realised apart from God's help and promises found in the Bible.  For instance:

  • “You are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.”1 Cor. 1:30
  • “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him” Rom.15:13
  • “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” - Rom.12:2
