THE CHURCH & RACIAL JUSTICE
Bearing witness to the compassion & conviction of Jesus Christ 

MARCH 15, 2022 | 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Hope Community Church Downtown Campus
$12.50

But let justice run down like water, And righteousness like a mighty stream.” (Amos 5:23-24, NKJV). Part of God’s plan for justice is that those who know Him would seek justice in and with their lives. The truth and authority of Scripture make the pursuit of racial justice a mandatory part of the Christian life. (Isaiah 1:17; Isaiah 56:1; Luke 10:25-37).

Join us as we hear from Justin Giboney with the AND Campaign as he shares how Unity, Clarity, Leadership, and Policy Change are critical pieces for the Church to pursue racial justice.


UNITY 

To bring Christians of all races, ages, and socioeconomic statuses together to address racial injustice.


CLARITY 

To communicate what the Bible says and where the Church stands on racial injustice without ambiguity or equivocation.


LEADERSHIP 

To take initiative and demonstrate that racial injustice is best confronted with hope and tenacity.


POLICY CHANGE 

To pursue renewal within the Church through conciliation and social renewal through non-partisan policy change.
