Statement on Racism

“God’s justice is seen when we deal fairly with each other and strive to change customs and practices that oppress and enslave others. Justice involves protecting the rights of others. It protests against everything that destroys human dignity.” Living Faith 8.4.2-8.4.3
We, at the Comox Valley Presbyterian church, are convinced that God has created all people equally and that God loves everyone the same. He has created all races and deeply desires that all people are treated equally, while recognizing that everyone is different.
We ask for God’s forgiveness and the forgiveness of those whom we have mistreated by our thoughts and actions. And it is with God’s help, we will work to treat others with love and understanding and follow God’s direction in the future.
