Undoing racism and advancing intercultural transformation is a priority of Mennonite Church USA.
Racism, antipathy and alienation stand in the way of Christ’s kingdom of love, justice and peace. As missional communities we will seek to dismantle individual and systemic racism in our church. We will also seek to develop intercultural competence, which means that we work to heal racial divisions, learn to live and work in a multicultural context, and value all the gifts of God’s diverse people.
We envision people of many nations, tribes and languages as participants in the kingdom of God. We believe it is Jesus, pictured as the Lamb, who calls people together from all nations. (Acts 10, Galatians 3:25-29, Ephesians 2:15; Revelation 7:9, Article 9, 211 Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective). (adapted from The Purposeful Plan)
