A world where all faiths, spiritual paths, cultural traditions, and communities cooperate for the benefit of all and are honored, respected, and celebrated.
It is the Mission of the Interfaith Council of Southern Nevada to promote mutual understanding, respect, appreciation and cooperation among people of various faith and cultural communities in Southern Nevada and in the world as a whole by appreciating the sacred, extending hospitality, offering educational opportunities, encouraging compassionate leadership, sharing in service and working for justice.
Build and sustain bridges of understanding, respect, and appreciation in our multifaith and multicultural community.
Provide opportunities for dialogue, partnership, education, service, hospitality, and celebration among people of various faiths and cultures.
Cultivate wide spread community support for interfaith and multicultural work in Southern Nevada and the world.
Originally organized as a committee of the National Conference of Christians and Jews (NCCJ later the National Conference of Community and Justice), the Interfaith Council of Southern Nevada promotes activities that encourage understanding and respect among all people, all traditions, all cultures, all philosophies, and all communities.
With the withdrawal of NCCJ from Nevada, the Interfaith Council believes that the work they perform and the functions they fill within the Southern Nevada community are critical and necessary. In order to continue to provide this venue for multicultural and multi-faith cooperation and understanding, the Interfaith Council of Southern Nevada was incorporated in the State of Nevada and chartered as a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization on January 5, 2005.
