Living Hope Community Church seeks to be a church that denounces all forms of hatred and

racism and seeks to “act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.” (Micah 6:8)

We believe Jesus calls and equips his followers to be his co-agents of reconciliation and do what

is right, treating all people with respect, regardless of their skin color, ethnicity, national origin,

language, faith, or citizenship. 1 The Holy Spirit leads and empowers us to follow Jesus’ example, 

changing our hearts to minister to all people with power and authority, equipped with the fruit

of the Spirit. 2

We believe this requires a long obedience. It will involve the difficult work of learning and

reading, repenting and uprooting, befriending and empowering. Toward this end, we have

created this resource page that will aid in the initial steps of educating and equipping in the

pursuit of racial equity. While this may seem like an insurmountable task before us, take heart!

The Spirit of Christ won't leave or forsake us in the pursuit of every good endeavor. 

1 Ephesians 2:14, 2Corinthians 5:18-19

2 Galatians 5:22

The session reviewed this statement and found it to be in agreement with our value that

Every Person Matters and to be consistent with the Bible and Essential Tenets of ECO
