Race is a difficult and complex topic, especially in light of American history. Rather than avoiding it, we believe God wants us as followers of Christ to engage issues of race and justice with humility, empathy, historical awareness, and biblical wisdom. As a church family, we are committed to expressing our rich diversity and experiencing authentic, gospel-centered unity.
How can we as followers of Christ actively become a passionate, unwavering voice for Christ in our culture? We encourage you to read “Unity in Diversity: The Gospel and Ethnicity,” a chapter in David Platt’s book, Counter Culture.
We’ve also released several episodes of a recorded conversation with leaders from our church from various racial and ethnic backgrounds. This was an honest and eye-opening dialogue in which they shared their personal experiences and thoughts about how we can most glorify God by doing justice, loving kindness, and walking humbly with Him (Micah 6:8).
