What does the Lord require of you?
To act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8 – NIV
The Justice & Witness Committee of the Illinois Conference advocates and coordinates the conference-wide issues and concerns of justice and peace. Its purpose is to help the conference witness in action and other forms of communication to the Christian mandate to promote peace and justice in our homes, state, nation and world. As witness to God’s resurrection power, the committee shall endeavor to inspire all to act in a spirit of love, which takes away the justification for physical/ verbal abuse, violence and war.
The Justice and Witness Committee of the Illinois Conference shall raise awareness around issues of social justice by empowering congregations to develop strategies to address social injustice and by resourcing congregations in their struggle for justice and peace.
