Jesus declared that he came “to proclaim good news to the poor … to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Luke 4:18-19).
Sharing the love of Christ—the gospel of Jesus Christ—involves both word and works. The gospel offers real hope for our present world because it affects all creation and calls for the transformation of our economic, political, social, and cultural structures.
The gospel is certainly more, but no less, than social justice. The mark of a true disciple is both a creed (1 Cor. 15:1-11; 2 Cor. 11:4; 1 Tim. 1:3) and deeds (Jas. 2:14-26). So join us as we serve our neighborhood for the glory of God and the renewal of our city.
