I. OUR MISSION AND COMMITMENT

The Kaiserswerth General Conference is an international union of diaconal agencies and diaconal communities/sister- hoods which have their origins in the deaconess movement of the Kaiserswerth tradition or are close to this tradition.

The members of the Kaiserswerth General Conference and their diaconal services are committed to the tradition of the Churches of the Reformation.

The members practice ecumenical openness and maintain contacts with other international diaconal communities, institutions and associations.

The Kaiserswerth General Conference reflects the diversity of gifts and missions, of cultures and faith traditions of its respective members.

The Kaiserswerth General Conference enables personal meetings as well as sharing about the diaconal practice. At the same time, the celebration of the faith, the common prayer and the intercession for each other constitute a strengthening bond.

The basis of all life and work in the communities and agencies of the members is the gospel of Jesus Christ with his mission to the service of love.

Our foundation is the Bible.
