Social Justice: Moving from Witness to Action

Our Purpose

is to continue the work of Jesus Christ, who welcomed sinners, healed the sick, fed the hungry, and preached good news to the poor. In fellowship with Christ the church is called to follow Christ in mission, led by the Holy Spirit, to bear witness through God's unconditional love to those who are among the poor, who are strangers, and who have become outcasts.

Our Mission

is to work for peace and reconciliation, together with Christ and our ecumenical partners reflecting the love God has shown us through Jesus Christ. We bring the message of God's love and justice to places of power as we offer guidance on complex ethical issues. And we honor God's calling to care for creation.

Our Goal

is to hear the many voices that are calling out for us as people of God to move from witness to action, as we follow Christ into mission and live out our purpose.
