Discovering God’s Heart for Racial Justice

God’s kingdom calls on us to grow our awareness and compassion for issues of social justice and anti-racism. 

Our hope is to respond to the issue of racial justice thoughtfully, biblically and in a manner that takes this conversation deep into our journey of discipleship. We want to respond as followers of Jesus and as his church, joining in the way of Jesus as agents of reconciliation, love, justice, mercy, hope and practical good deeds.

Read our leadership's statement about racial justice.


  • For Jesus to help you search your own heart and reveal needed transformations.
  • For the Church to live out the gospel.
  • For real change in our nation.
