Muslim-Christian Dialogue Center

Our mission is to foster mutual understanding and cooperation among Muslims and Christians through academic and community dialogue grounded in the Qur'anic and Christian traditions. The dialogue flows from the belief that Muslims and Christians worship the same God who is at work in both faiths. Our focus is primarily theological, rather than political, because our two faiths have so much in common theologically.
