Justice and Mercy MinistriesFree Methodists Humbly on Mission with God

If racial unity is to be realized in the world, it must first be realized and harmoniously portrayed in the people of God. Yet sadly, there is much to be done to align our hearts and minds in such a way to achieve such harmony. The multifaceted sin of racism must be put to death through the healing work of the Holy Spirit in those who call themselves Christian.
Our mission is to extol and deepen the Free Methodist Church’s historic commitment to oppose oppression and restore God’s wholeness to those who have been disenfranchised both in society and within the church.
