Our Response to Racism in America

Adventures in Missions – Beliefs and Actions in Response to Racism

Our Beliefs

  • Genesis 1:27

    So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

    A sin against man is a sin against God. Racism is an affront to God and His people.
  • Micah 6:8

    He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

    Scripture instructs us to seek righteousness, justice and mercy
  • Acts 17:26

    From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.

  • Amos 5

    We will advocate for the voice and the life of those impacted by racism until righteousness, justice and equality are achieved.
  • We are commissioned as followers of Christ to be a force for His Kingdom. Therefore we will stand against all forms of racism in any dimension of society. Seeking the Kingdom should come first above political, social and racial constructs.
  • We acknowledge that religion has been invoked to support racism and we break all agreement with it.
  • We will exhort all people within our influence to embrace these core principles.
