We are deeply grieved by the killing of George Floyd. His death reflects an indifference to humanity and ignores the inherent dignity of the Creator in each of us. This, and the succeeding protests that have flowed from the pain of injustice, serve as a national reminder that the sin of racism continues to mar human relationships and society as a whole.
We believe every human being is made in the image of God and we affirm the God-given worth, dignity and equality of men and women from every tribe, language, people and nation. As followers of Jesus we are instructed to pursue righteousness and justice, personally and throughout our culture. The Bible calls us to love one another (Matthew 22:39), bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2) and to consider not only our needs but the needs of others (Philippians 2:4). We are commanded to act justly, love mercy and to walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).
As followers of Jesus Christ and undeserving recipients of His grace, we acknowledge the brokenness of how we have related to one another. This reveals itself in how individuals and groups are treated based on the color of their skin. This is counter to the heart of God who creates each individual in His image, with infinite value. We also own that over the years, Christ followers, including ourselves, have turned a blind eye and failed to speak up. Often, we have not taken the time to listen, learn and lament. In the power of the Holy Spirit we are committed to seek change in our own lives.
In this time of anguish and turmoil it is only the love of God that can reshape both heart and character. Each of us is created by God for a relationship with Him. Jesus Christ alone is our hope. His unconditional love offers the opportunity for a restored relationship, by faith, through His death and resurrection. This is our message to the world as we proclaim and live out the love of Jesus.
