The Make Change Ministry was established to support the work of the Justice Formation Fellowship which is comprised of local congregations and non-profit organizations committed to creating a more just world by helping their members understand and respond to the Divine mandate to Do Justice, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).
This righteousness of God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all and upon all who believe, for there is no distinction. – Romans 3:22
BACKGROUND: Over the course of history and still present today, our nation is overflowing with prejudice. For decades, minority communities subjected to violence, racism, and injustice. This is where Make Change Ministry comes into play.
PURPOSE: Make Change Ministry supports and provides a voice for those subjected to violence, racism, and injustice by examining, innovating, and implementing ways to make change by spreading the love of Jesus Christ. Spreading the love of Christ to make a difference in one’s life will contribute and benefit to the growth of His kingdom. Jesus paid the price once for all who choose to receive Him as Lord and Savior (Romans 6:10). Today’s society is long overdue for change. Our world will not change unless all people receive Christ. It is time for the family of Christ to take a step forward in promoting change. It needs to begin now, and it begins with us (Matthew 28:19). We cannot expect change in our world where we are idly standing by. We can only make disciples if we first minister and spread the love of Jesus.
