"Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause." Isaiah 1:17
Mission and Vision
Charlotte Justice Conference believes in the audacity of the Gospel -- a perfect God loving His creation to the point of sacrificing Himself to redeem humanity. Through that radical love, we are likewise called to be on Earth as ambassadors to the King -- to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly before God (Micah 6:8).
Each one of us at CJC believes that Jesus meant what He said when He told his followers to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28: 19) and that blessing those in the margins means doing so to God (Matthew 25:40). We believe this means looking like fools to the world while we pour out our lives to the causes of mercy and love (1 Corinthians 4:10).
We believe in the power of truth telling and that we need it before justice can occur. We believe that the marginalized have powerful stories that should be heard. We believe the Church can answer the needs of the city, state, and country in a way that has eternally beautiful ramifications.
We believe that racial conciliation, economic empowerment, and other justice issues are only ultimately satisfied fully in the power of God. We believe that good works of justice are an outpouring of love to God, and does not lead to our own glory or salvation (Ephesians 2:8). And we believe that God is on the move in this city through the work of individuals and churches throughout Charlotte and beyond.
