Renew Our World Campaign
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)
Our world is at a crossroads. We can choose whether to move forward, to continue the incredible gains made against poverty, to strive to halt climate change, to break down structures of inequality… or not.
If we take God’s call of transformation and renewal to heart; then we must be compelled not only to choose justice, but to lead the movement toward it.
Renew Our World is a global movement of Christians who believe that since we are truly image bearers of God, we should act like it – living out love for one another in actions and in truth. Since we are image bearers of God, we won’t stand by while our neighbours are trapped in poverty, and we won’t stay idle as creation is left untended, and inequality is left to fester.
