Peace & Justice

"Seek Justice, Freedom and Peace" is one of the four goals of Global Ministries. To meet this goal, we participate with people oppressed by unjust economic, political and social systems in programs that seek to build just, free and peaceful societies.

As Christians from the Wesleyan tradition, our belief in God, Christ and the Holy Spirit requires each of us to be involved in Christian mission and service to the world. "Love of God is always linked with love of neighbor, a passion for justice and renewal of the life of the world." 

Here you will find the ways in which Global Ministries works to connect the United Methodists with efforts to create peace, call for justice and, in so doing, live a faithful life.
