"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Ephesians 2:11-22
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.

The history of segregation, systemic injustice, and slavery has left a gaping wound in America. For those who are unwilling to either understand the work of the gospel, or the history of prejudice in our nation, they, will go through life blind to the hope for unity and love. They will be lazy to the work of the gospel and form a Jesus who blesses them, while telling others to just pull yourself up by your bootstraps. While we have come far from the days of "Whites Only", there seems to be a new face of racism popping up, not only in our cities, but in our churches. We are committed to the Ministry of Reconciliation as Christ our King has given us. Join us as we do our best to listen, be vulnerable, and worship Jesus who broke down the dividing wall of hostility.
