GOSPEL JUSTICE INITIATIVE
"The most important one [commandment]," answered Jesus,"is this: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these." - Mark 12:29-31
We take the words and life of Jesus seriously. Jesus inextricably links loving God and loving our neighbor. In light of this, we believe doing justice and loving mercy are not merely noble extracurriculars but essential to following the Way of Jesus and the natural outpouring of abiding with Him.
The Gospel Justice Initiative (GJI) is committed to seeing believers of Christ transformed into followers of Christ. We believe that genuine love of others goes hand in hand with sanctification and discipleship. We seek to join our faith with our works by faithfully creating spaces where we submit our hearts (prayer, confession, & repentance), minds (education & research), and strength (fellowship & service) to God's call to love Him wholly and love our neighbors as ourselves.
VISIT the gji's kindle library
Kindles are available for loan by the connections table during our post-service meet and greet time. This Library builds on the documentary viewings, as we continue to self-educate and pursue God’s justice and righteousness with our heads, hearts and hands. Kindles are available to borrow with recommended foundational texts to help expand your knowledge on issues of racial justice, systemic injustice and other related topics.
