About Social Justice

Purpose: Through the social ministries of the church we seek to live out a clear biblical mandate for “biblical righteousness and justice.” We seek to be a living witness of God’s grace and love for all humanity.

Mission: The ministry is devoted to serving as the congregation’s voice in the areas of social justice, social concern, social change and social ministry. Through this ministry we seek to be visibly present in the community where we are planted. It is our means for serving as God’s agent of social transformation
