- that every human being, beginning in the womb, is created in the Imago Dei (image of God), and therefore, every human should be valued, protected and loved. As God has loved us, so will we will love others. As God has forgiven us, so we will choose to forgive.
- that racism in any form or fashion is an affront to the Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore should be rebuked by those who claim to love, follow, worship, and obey Him.
- that the people of God should be leading the way in creating healthy opportunities to eradicate racism. We will do this with our words and our deeds, and with anyone who will stand with us to declare the value and worth of every individual.
- that God has commanded His people to honor those in authority, and to actively pray for them. With this command, we pray for the President and his administration to be grieved by the things that grieve God, and lead our country in a way that would please God.
- that God desires all the people of the world to worship Jesus Christ, and we commit to love and serve others so that desire may come true. Thus, we stand today with anyone, of any skin tone, and invite them into the majestic presence of God through Jesus Christ.
- that the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Church are the only hope for a broken world. Our problems go deeper than our skin, our ideologies, or our communities. At the core, we have a sin problem that only Jesus Christ can adequately remove. The mission of the Church should be one of rescue, acceptance, healing, and transformation, all by the power of God’s Holy Spirit.
- that any group that claims supremacy over another is misled at best, and demonic at worst. Only the Lord Jesus Christ is supreme. We align ourselves with Him, and Him alone. No political party, no theological treatise, no eloquent philosophy or no earthly pursuit will be more important to us than the supremacy of God found in Jesus Christ.
- that we can learn from the mistakes and sins of those who came before us as it pertains to race relations, and then move forward into a better future where character counts more than color.- that isolation creates division, which eventually creates racism. This is why it’s critical to build healthy bridges with all our neighbors, as we learn from them, serve them, and most of all, love them. - that God is making all things new, even in the midst of our sinful and corrupt world, and that even the recent events of history will bring about good for those who choose to love and obey God.
