Our Fundamental Beliefs and Core Values
Spirituality: Spirituality is the aspect of humanity that refers to the way individuals seek and express meaning and purpose and the way they experience their inter-connectedness to the moment, to self, to others, to nature, and to the significant or sacred. While spirituality may incorporate elements of religion, it is generally a broader concept. Religion and spirituality are not the same thing, nor are they entirely distinct from one another.
Humanitarianism: Humanitarianism is an active belief in the value of human life, whereby humans practice benevolent treatment and provide assistance to other humans, in order to better humanity for moral, altruistic and logical reasons. It is the philosophical belief in movement toward the improvement of the human race in a variety of areas, used to describe a wide number of activities relating specifically to human welfare, justice and peace. A practitioner is known as a humanitarian.
Charity: Charity (practice), the practice of being benevolent, giving and sharing. Charity (virtue), the religious concept of unlimited love and kindness. Charity involves helping those who need it. If we know someone in need, we can always buy the groceries, give some type of gift card, or pay for a bill that we know is coming up.
In order to be charitable, it is also important to be hospitable, friendly, compassionate, and kind.
Divinity: If you know the word divine means Holy or Sacred, then you have a clue to the meaning of Divinity, which can be a god or other spiritual being. Anything very Holy is full of Divinity. In religion, Divinity or Godhead is the state of things that are believed to come from a supernatural power or deity, such as a God, supreme being, creator deity, or spirits, and are therefore regarded as Sacred and Holy. Such things are regarded as Divine due to their transcendental origins or because their attributes or qualities are superior or supreme relative to things of the Earth.

Religious Institutes often claim they have not sought Accreditation since they are not relevant Accreditors. Since many Bible Schools acknowledge that their degrees are not academic in nature, this is the reason why we offer Accreditation to College and Universities of Biblical Studies, of New Testament, or generally speaking Christian Studies, and following the Christian Ecumenism. We do offer Accreditation in accordance with European Laws in the field of Higher Education
The Church of Saint Peter & Saint Paul archdiocese in mainland Europe, is the church and ministry of the Order of Saint Paul, and presided by the archbishopric in Menen, Belgium. The Church follows the apostolic and orthodox faith, and is in communion with many mainstream denominations. The church is open to all repentant believers, offers regular services with sacraments in the churches of our dioceses, and Christian education, in accordance with our Articles of Religion.
We have missions in South America (Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico), the Caribbean, Algeria (Kabilia), Nigeria, and Guinea. We also work to bring the knowledge of The Holy Trinity in the Federation of Russia (Bashkortostan) and in Pakistan. Our missionaries belong to our Branch “The Ecumenical Missions of Saint Peter and Saint Paul”, overseen by the Most Rev. Prof. Dr. F. Burcklé.
The Order of Saint Paul works in arm’s length with the Federal Association for the Advancement of Visible Minorities (FAAVM) established in Canada in 2002. The FAAVM Canada is a nonprofit, charitable organization. Our major focus involves using various multifunctional civil rights programs to help our mostly disadvantaged, underprivileged minorities. Via the FAAVM multilateral humanitarian systems, and activities, we're able to reach out to these people who are very difficult to reach via more traditional-type programs.
We then use these activities to help improve the quality of life of these disadvantaged peoples, also called the visible minorities. Our all-volunteer network nationwide program is comprised of several components, all having to do with providing meaningful and positive educational, socio-cultural, spiritual, economic and overall human development activities for our mostly economically disadvantaged nationwide and worldwide.
