Statement on Racism
During recent days, there have been many acts of injustice across our nation. These particular known acts of racism, specifically, have deeply hurt and divided many people.
As the Church, we know that these events deeply hurt our Lord and at the same time should hurt and sadden us. The individuals involved in all of these events are image bearers of God and therefore, should be treated as such.
When people are not treated as someone created in the image and likeness of God, we should follow the words of Micah 6:8, “do justice, and love kindness, and walk humbly.”
At Restoration Church, we believe these things. Therefore, your Elders want it to be known that… We believe that racism is a sin.
We believe in the need for reconciliation.
We believe that as born again followers of Christ we must speak out against injustice.
