Core Principles

Christian Democracy is based on six core principles:

social justice

respect for life

reconciliation and peace making

empowerment and localisation

wise stewardship

active compassion

These six principles are not mutually exclusive, but overlap like the Olympic circles. They also need careful consideration and application in practical situations, especially where they may appear to conflict. But in politics that is best worked out at the local level - in correspondence with the principle of empowerment at the lowest level.

Choosing a
positive alternative

The Christian Peoples Alliance is a political party based on the Christian Democrat principles that seek to apply the teachings of Jesus Christ to public policy. We are considered progressive on matters of social justice and economics and conservative on personal responsibility, social and moral issues.

Christian Democracy arose in the late 1800’s and is a political way of thinking that is found elsewhere in the world, particularly parts of Latin America and Europe, although in various places it has been diluted by secularisation. Click here for a good introductory article on Christian Democracy
