The Purpose of the Interfaith Council of Greater Richmond is to develop understanding, respect and cooperation among the various religious faiths.
We are an organization of 19 different religious denominations in the city of Richmond and surrounding counties. The member congregations within these faith groups bring together diverse doctrinal, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The uniqueness of the Interfaith Council is its ability to cherish this rich diversity and at the same time to celebrate the unity of all these faiths by addressing basic human needs through cooperative community service.
This group, due to the many diverse traditions of its members, does not worship together or involve itself in specialized political concerns of component denominations. In this way, the integrity of each denomination is preserved while working to enhance the sensitivity of groups toward one another and to identify and eliminate prejudice where it is found.
