When asked which commandment is the greatest, Jesus replied: ''You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.'This is the greatest and first commandment.And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself.' (Matthew 22.37-39). Love of neighbour is intrinsic to our worship and teaching.

The basis for our social justice work with people is the parable of the Sheep and the Goats (Matthew 25.31-46), in which Jesus tells his disciples that those who will be blessed by God, and given an inheritance in God's kingdom, are those who give food and drink to those who are hungry and thirsty, who give hospitality to strangers, who clothe the naked, who care for those who are sick, and who visit those in prison.
