Fostering racial justice and unity in the Body of Christ (John 17:23)

Racial injustice and disunity in the church is a big problem.

It puts us outside of God’s purpose and plan for his followers (Mk 11:17, Eph 2:1-22). It contradicts the teachings, example, and prayers of Jesus (Mt 8:11, 22:35-40; Jn 4:1-42, 17:20-23). It prevents us from fulfilling Christ’s great commandment (Jn 13:34-35) and great commission (Mt 28:19-20). It is contrary to the example and instructions of the biblical authors and early Christians (Deut 10:17-19; Isa 56:7; Zech 2:10-11; Acts 2:42-47, 6:1-7, 10:9-22; 1 Cor 12:12-30; Gal 2:11-21; James 2:1-13; 1 Pt 2:4-12; 1 Jn 3:11-24). It is a heavy load to carry that hinders our walk with God and impact in our society. It’s time for change!

Imagine what a just and unified church could do.

What if Christians of different races combined our prayers, knowledge, and resources to address the most destructive forces in our society (racial injustice, broken families, poverty, crime, poor education, drugs, depression, etc.)? What if we worked together to build organizations that modeled biblical racial justice and unity unjust and divided society?

A difficult challenge

Working toward biblical racial justice and unity is a complex and challenging journey. Leaders often rely on an open door policy, advertising, conferences, or designating a “diversity specialist”. These things can help, but are typically inadequate for producing the organization-wide motivation, knowledge, and skill necessary for true, lasting change.

What we do

We provide Bible-based training and assessment resources for Christians and Christian organizations. We help them to grow in their understanding of racial dynamics in their organization and our society and help to equip them with the motivation, knowledge, and skill to do their part to bring about change.
