Vision: Bringing about racial reconciliation within the Body of Christ within the City of Conway for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the glory of God.
Mission: Members of Peacemakers Discussion Group (PDG) meeting together for purpose of racial reconciliation within the Church for the sake of the Gospel and because Jesus commanded us and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. We will proceed through
- discussion of racial issues,
- plan and strategize to address racism and racial division in the Church,
- support, encourage and pray for one another in the process.
We are followers of Jesus Christ from various denominations, political persuasions, and life experiences who believe that The Church/Body of Christ has the answer to the racial divisions & conflict that grip our world, and who know we are all worthy only through God's grace.
We are men and women not just concerned with our individual churches by THE CHURCH of Jesus Christ.
We are Believers brought together by the Gospel to demonstrate love across racial lines while building stronger connections between churches for the ministry of reconciliation in Conway.
Jesus commanded us:
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, If you have love for one another.” John 13: 34-35
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the messages of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ.” II Corinthians 5:17-20
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed the following for his disciples and future believers:
“Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one...I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may be one, just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” John 17: 11,20-21
