As one of the many Christian organizations that seek to be a part of God’s redeeming story, World Renew humbly stands, hand in hand, with our brothers and sisters around the world to declare God’s love for all people and every nation. We condemn words or actions that devalue any person or country.
World Renew is committed to being an anti-racist ministry. We operate within a Biblical framework which proclaims the truth that all people are created in the image of God and are therefore filled with dignity and worthy of our respect. We stand on two commands: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’. (Mark 12:30-31).
In truth, we are the neighbors who have been welcomed, loved, impacted, and transformed by the intelligent, talented, passionate, and committed people of Haiti, of El Salvador, and of the countries of Africa. We give testimony to their depth, beauty, richness, and achievements. Our humble desire is simply to reflect the goodness and amplify the light which already exists in these countries.
We are blessed to be on this journey together, especially in times of distress and oppression caused by poverty, disaster, and injustice at home and abroad. We walk together without showing partiality because we believe that showing partiality is sinful (James 2:1-10).
With gladness in our hearts we look forward to the day which the Apostle John describes: “there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:9)
