UNITY HOUSE is a building project created for the purpose
of establishing a fully funded building program supported by an interfaith
coalition of area Houses of Worship. UNITY HOUSE will bring together
different faith communities to achieve one common goal to build decent,
affordable houses with families in need.
Habitat for Humanity provides a unique and blessed opportunity for thousands of people to tangibly live out their faith. Habitat is much more, however. As Millard Fuller, founder and president of Habitat International states "If Habitat were primarily a movement of individuals, there would be nothing lasting to it. But this is God's movement and there's nothing that can stop it."
Short Term Goal - 2007
Long Term Goal
The Theology of the Hammer
The UNITY HOUSE project puts into practice the "theology of the hammer". The theology of the hammer teaches us to put aside our differences and to work in partnership with one another. Millard Fuller (founder) explains it this way:
"This theology is about bringing a wide diversity of people, churches and other organizations together to build houses and establish viable and dynamic communities. It is acknowledging that differences of opinion exist on numerous subjects political, philosophical and theological - but that we can find common ground in using a hammer as an instrument to manifest God's love. Even though there may be strong differences on all sort of things baptism, communion, what night to have prayer meeting, and how the preacher should dress, for example we can agree on the imperative of the gospel to serve others in the name of the Lord."
