The Union Mission’s Statement on Racial Injustice
The Board of Directors and staff of The Union Mission are grieving the tragic death of George Floyd by those who took an oath to protect and serve. As followers of Jesus Christ, we believe that the Scriptures clearly teach that all people, no matter their color or ethnicity, are created in the image of God. There is dignity to each life that this cruel event and many others have served to undermine.
Our mission is to share the transformative Love of Jesus Christ with all people. We are disturbed by the continuation of racial violence and heartless treatment of others. Together we will examine our Ministry conduct for ways that we may have perpetuated discrimination and hatred by our actions, our inactions, or our indifference—and we will seek to do better, holding each other accountable as brothers and sisters in Christ.
As believers and defenders of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we stand opposed to the great evils of racism, discrimination, injustice, and violence against all people, but especially against the poor and defenseless.
Together we stand with our African American brothers and sisters and with all who have been deeply wounded by these events and other continuing injustices.
Challenged by the Gospel, we are resolved to work to bring about racial equity, harmony, and unity for the glory of God.
