Statement of Vision
Because the Christian Reformed Church’s unity and diversity must mirror that of God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the members and agencies of the Christian Reformed Church are called to be reconciled with one another as a community of racially and ethnically diverse people of God. It is the vision of the Christian Reformed Church to live out this calling by:
- Rejecting and resisting the practice and tolerance of racism in all its forms.
- Confessing that racism diminishes us all and putting into practice biblical principles of sharing insight, courage, access, power, and resources.
- Celebrating the image of God in all people of every race and culture.
CRC Race Relations will initiate and provide effective and collaborative training, programs, and organizing actions in ways that mobilize Christian Reformed agencies and educational institutions, as well as classes and congregations to recognize, expose, and dismantle racism in all its forms and to experience true biblical reconciliation as a diverse and unified people of God.
