The Micah Mandate

The Micah Mandate is a Christian-based public interest advocacy that seeks a transformation of our nation through justice, mercy and humility (cf. Micah 6:8, The Holy Bible).

We believe that every individual person is made in the image of God and should be held in high esteem regardless of social status, political affiliation, gender, race, creed, or religion.

We subscribe to a participatory constitutional monarchy where fundamental civil liberties and the human rights of every individual are respected and safeguarded.

We want to encourage a citizen-based brand of journalism whereby individuals and groups of individuals of all walks of life will find space to express their views and concerns and be engaged in a dialogue with others.

We uphold the Rukunegara, or our five canons of nationhood, as our national philosophy:

Belief in God
Loyalty to King and Country
The Supremacy of our Constitution
The Rule of Law
Civility and Morality

In pursuit of these aims, we seek to partner like-minded Civil Society groups and individuals to contribute to a transformation of our nation. We believe this is possible when ordinary individuals begin to desire first to be transformed themselves.

The initiators of Micah Mandate are:

Goh Keat Peng, (Rev) Sivin Kit, Bob Teoh, ((Rev) Ting Moy Hong and (Rev) Peter Young,
