Next Steps in the Church’s Quest to Seek Justice

God’s heart for justice and mercy is beating strongly here in the Twin Cities! The first Twin Cities Justice Weekend was a giant success. The president of the International Justice Mission (IJM) encouraged churches to seek justice as a calling from God. We learned that human trafficking is a money driven enterprise and the buyers are the fuel that keep it running, according to Sgt. Grant Snyder of the Minneapolis Police Department. Sgt. Snyder encouraged church leaders to address the problems of human trafficking by starting with the offenders, who are often men who attend our churches. Find out how Twin Cities churches can continue to be a part of the quest to end modern-day slavery. Let’s not allow the momentum to slow down – Let justice roll on like a river!

The Christian Way of Fighting Global Injustice

With 36 million slaves in the world, 2 million women caught in sex trafficking, and corruption a common practice in many of the world’s court systems; it can be overwhelming for U.S. churches to look outside of themselves and care about global injustice. But as followers of Jesus, we need to care about the injustice in the world. Our justice-work must be rooted in the Bible, and covered in prayer, before any action is taken. Read how some Twin Cities churches are taking innovative steps and doing the hard work of combating injustice in our world.

Evangelical Defined, Do You Fit the Label?

The National Association of Evangelicals recently came up with a new definition for what it means to be “evangelical.”
Find out if you or your church fits the NAE’s new label of evangelical. And read more on how some Lutherans and Catholics are responding to the NAE’s new definition of evangelical, now that it is all based on beliefs, not behavior, denomination, race or political affiliation.

Those who strongly agree with these 4 statements are considered evangelical:

1. The Bible is the highest authority for what I believe.
2. It is very important for me personally to encourage non-Christians to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior.
3. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross is the only sacrifice that could remove the penalty of my sin.
4. Only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive God’s free gift of eternal salvation.
