"I want to see a mighty flood of justice, a river of righteous living that will never run dry." ~ God (Amos 5:24)

What is Christian Social Justice?

The Just Life as a ministry is about more than what is commonly understood as social justice. Yes, Christians should be involved in social justice, but “social justice” is simply not a big enough term for our God and our calling as Christ followers. The heart of Christian social justice is rooted in the way that a personal faith in Christ can transform people into a new body of believers where there is no social, economic, racial, or gender division (Galatians 3:28, Colossians 3:10-11). Doing justice is about repairing the fabric of society where it is torn apart and helping restore the Shalom God intended for mankind to experience.
