Pastors’ Fellowship Statement on Racism

Pastors’ Fellowship Statement on Racism

Pastors’ Fellowship is committed to preaching and re-preaching the truths that brought our movement into existence. Unity is a foundational, inspirational, biblical doctrine that calls us to break down any and all barriers that sin has brought into this world. One of the tools hell has brought forth is that of racism, and we cannot be silent.

We believe the Scriptures are clear that God has created all people in His Image (Genesis 1:27).

We believe we are all one in Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:27-28).

We believe the church is given the mission to make disciples of every nation (Matthew 28:19).

We believe division is sin and racism divides people (I Corinthians 12:25).

We believe we are to mourn with those who mourn (Romans 12:15).

We believe racism threatens those we love and destroys holiness.

We believe we live in a time where we cannot remain silent on issues that hurt others.

John A. Morrison wrote in the Gospel Trumpet, “…to hate a fellow human being because of his skin color is to descend to the lowest level of moral evil.” (May 22, 1960)

The General Assembly of the Church of God states, “Firmly believing that the New Testament teaching sets forth a brotherhood without racial discrimination, we will work to achieve an experience of fairness and honest love toward all our brethren, free from discrimination based on race. This calls for patience, understanding, forgiveness, and unselfish service from every member regardless of race. The law of love should be the rule by which we live under all circumstances.”

We base our position toward human rights on the teaching of the Scriptures.

Therefore, we commit as Pastors’ Fellowship to seek God’s guidance in removing racism from ourselves and our society.

We commit to stand with our brothers and sisters against all forms of racism.

We commit to always seek to include all races into our fellowship and let their voices be heard.

We commit ourselves to standing upon the Biblical truth of unity and applying the teachings of Jesus to our lives.
