SOCIAL JUSTICE MINISTRY

The term “Social Justice Ministry” at UFC, Greater Atlanta refers to the way that we as individuals and collectively as a church, serve one another, and our neighbors with the goal of proclaiming the sacredness and divinity of all humans.  This practice is rooted in the teachings of Jesus the Christ found throughout the New Testament and particularly in Mathew 25. Because UFC, Greater Atlanta is a social justice ministry, the goal is individual transformation that leads to collective action toward a just society.  Social justice ministry also involves movement towards a society where all members are physically, psychologically and spiritually safe and secure, where individuals are able to develop their full capacities and interact democratically with others, and where the distribution of resources is more equitable and reflective of common humanity.
