World Renew believes that God’s Word directs us to welcome strangers in our midst and to extend special care to the poor.
World Renew respects the governing authorities and the laws of the state.
World Renew understands that citizenship in the kingdom of God obligates us to the highest law: love for God and for our neighbours. Exercising this love should lead us to advocate for laws that will mandate the just and humane treatment of immigrant peoples; indeed, love for the immigrant should lead us to expand and not retract our refugee resettlement programs.
World Renew will continue to respond to the needs of refugees in their countries of origin, and will seek to advocate for them in their countries of refuge.
