I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.
(John 17:23 ESV)
The Racial Reconciliation Network is a non-profit 501(c)(3) ministry responding to the gospel’s call for Christian unity among believers, so that Christ will be more fully known.
One of the primary areas of disunity in the American church is racial. Our history of slavery, segregation, and other various forms of racism have hindered the church from displaying the love and unity towards each other, that are meant to be identifying characteristics of Christians. This failure on our part has contributed to the racial hostility we continue to see in our country today.
In an expression of repentance and reconciliation, this network has been established to help the racially divided church become internally reconciled.
In addition to this, we recognize the biblical instruction for believers to “do justice, love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8). In response, we resolve to advocate and bring relief to those who are unjustly harmed by racism.
We invite you to join us on this reconciliation journey, in order to exalt Christ in our unity.
Uniting churches to conquer racism and do justice with a Christ-centered approach.
To create a network of pastors, churches, small groups and businesses committed to Christ-
centered and cross-racial ministry partnership.
Jesus prayed that his followers would be one as he and the Father are one, so that the world would know he was sent from God. The Racial Reconciliation Network is actively pursuing greater degrees of gospel-centered unity, specifically focused on overcoming racial divisions within the Christian community. We are connecting Christians who have historically been alienated from each other, and intentionally engaging in conversations, fellowship, worship, and doing biblical justice in our communities together. We long to see many more people reconciled to God, as the result of diverse groups of Christians being reconciled to each other.
