At the heart of the Quaker faith is the belief that there is ‘that of God in everyone’ and that the love and concern which arises from this is meaningless unless it influences the way we live our lives. As a consequence of this, we believe that faith and action are inextricably linked and that we not only express but deepen our faith by the actions we take and the decisions we make.

Quaker testimonies have been developed over many years to help us, not only by providing valuable insights and advice, but also in questioning and challenging us. The testimonies focus on four main aspects: truth and integrity; justice, equality; simplicity and peace. They are not imposed but provide guiding principles to help us on our spiritual journeys.

As well as trying to live in line with these testimonies in our private lives, Quakers try to witness to them in their actions e.g. in promoting truth, honesty and integrity within business or workplace; in involvement in prison visiting and reform,; in developing concerns and actions aimed at safeguarding the environment; in opposing social injustice and poverty; in actions for peace and conflict resolution.

At various times of our lives we may be called upon to focus specifically on ways in which we might be of particular service in the wider community but it is just as important that we support those who are able to take on such responsibilities. As Quakers, we also try to incorporate these testimonies into the way in which we live our everyday lives. It often seems more difficult for us to reflect our faith in our close relationships with family members, work colleagues, friends or acquaintances and in our daily actions and the decisions we take.

We are all different and at various stages of our lives with differing priorities, concerns, energies, responsibilities and talents but it is these differences which both challenge and unite Quakers. Faith in action isn’t easy and the ways in which we are able to show it may be diverse. We may make mistakes but we are helped along our pathway by the spiritual nourishment, support and guidance we receive from attending the local Meeting for Worship and from the wider Quaker community.
