To Affirm the Death Penalty Is to Reject the Christian Gospel

Yes, You Can Be Pro-Woman and Pro-Child. Rise Above the Divide with Us.

America’s divisive politics have sold our nation far short. We’ve been told for too long that we must choose a side—women’s dignity and bodily integrity or the value of nascent human life. In truth, Jesus sees and cares for both. So should we. The draft Supreme Court...

Our Values


At the heart of Justice Revival’s mission is Jesus’ commandment to love one another as God loves us (John 13:34). We seek to create community where the radical welcome of Jesus is offered to all, for as the apostle Paul preached, there is no distinction in God’s love (Gal. 3:28)


Our Values


Believing that the Good News of Jesus’ ministry means liberation for all, we are devoted to the cause of justice and the struggle to end all forms of oppression (Luke 4:18-19). We regard justice as an essential tenet of the Christian Gospel and the prophetic biblical witness, central to the work of the Christian Church and the spiritual life of its people (Micah 6:8).


Our Values


With regard for truth, we are committed to listening deeply to those affected by injustice and standing together in solidarity. In the spirit of truth, we acknowledge that our biases perpetuate destructive stereotypes, and place our hope in transformation through the renewing of our minds (Rom. 12:2).


Our Values


We strive to repair the breach that results when human relationships are fractured by racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, nationalism, or socio-economic inequity. We look beyond existing divisions for common ground where reconciliation is possible and relationships can flourish in the peace of Christ (Col. 3:15).


Our Values


Believing the wellspring of ministry is communion with Christ, we root all of our endeavors in growing lives of Christian faith. Trusting that apart from God we can do nothing, we depend on the spirit of the living God rather than resting on human wisdom (1 Cor 2:1-5).
