    2. communing with God in prayer;
    3. fellowship with one another;
  2. to encourage and facilitate among Christians in the vocation of law the integration of a biblical faith with contemporary legal, moral, social and political issues;
  3. to assist Christians in the vocation of law in manifesting a life filled with the Holy Spirit of God in all dimensions of the practice of law;

  5. to encourage Christians in the vocation of law, under the enablement of the Holy Spirit of God , to demonstrate responsible Christian love in the home, office, community and church;
  6. to assist Christians in the vocation of law to explore, study, and assert to the legal community and society at large the relevance of the Christian faith to every issue of private life and public concern;
  7. to encourage Christians in the vocation of law to accept the responsibility that they are the instruments through which the Holy Spirit of God works, and therefore are obliged to direct the law to reflect God’s righteousness and mercy, fully realizing that it is through the power of Christ and not the works of man that the Kingdom of God will be ushered in;
  8. to encourage Christians in the vocation of law to do justice and show compassion as individual members and as a corporate body, especially to those who are needy, as befits citizens of the Kingdom of God;
