The " Approach" from the OSMTH Overview is as follows:
"Although a Christian Order, OSMTH is not a church, fundamentalist group or missionary organisation - we do not give spiritual guidance nor judge those who follow another path of faith. We are not modern day "Crusaders". We express our Christian belief through our works.
As a modern-day Order we achieve these works through our "four pillars":
- Peacemaking, Peacebuilding and Justice: mediation, facilitation, diplomacy, humanitarian relief, capacity building and development;
- Clergy: close and active working relations with all Christian denominations, plus interfaith dialogue and bridge-building;
- Membership: high-level membership with regards to professional expertise, motivation, and networks;
- Tradition: expressed as a Chivalric Order through our Ecclesiastic protection and Royal patronage, the Regula Moderna, ethical code of conduct, academic and historical discourse.
