The impetus for TACLC is the observation that God calls for the universal church of Jesus Christ to be the pillar and ground of truth (I Tim 3:15) for all areas of life including all society institutions (Psalm 127:1). For the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein (Psalm 24:1).
This stimulus includes the observable need for more intense Christian involvement in helping people to live the desired life of faith
(Matthew 22:15-22; Matthew 25:27, 40; John 17:21; Acts 6:1-7; Acts 15:1-35; Ephesians 4:11-16) everywhere on earth in a manner that glorifies God. This includes easing the denominational, racial, political, and socio-economic divide in society.

No Blame Gathering:
We do not gather to point blame fingers. We gather to encourage more awareness and diligent
resolution of the perception or actuality of problems in community, city, state, and nation. Remember those on the
mountain may not hear the concerned talk in the valley and those in the valley may feel those on the mountain are not
listening and do not care, and vice versa. It is up to those on the mountain and those in the valley to
peacefully and compassionately reach down and up to one another in the human struggle to live a godly loving dignified life.
Be mindful mountains and valleys are relative and contextual.
We do not claim one group consists of better persons than another; we seek righteous equity and justice for all.
Let us all with godly humility grow in grace, understanding, and appreciation for one another
regardless of role, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, political affiliation, education, and socio-economic status, etc.
Let us all have the courage and conviction to carry out our societal role in a godly spirit of care, concern, and compassion
regardless of the perceived or actual power or lack thereof we possess relative to one another.
