Core Concepts

Our Founding Maxim: Justice Through Discipleship

The Just Life ministry seeks to offer biblical teaching and practical solutions for the life we are called to live in response to God’s demand for love and justice from His people.  We believe that a disciplined response to God’s heart for justice is a core part of our discipleship in Christ — and that as we grow our lives will begin to naturally manifest a living definition of biblical justice. To aid this journey we have created a series of what we consider to be core concepts:

This introductory conversation is focused on promoting an awareness of and response to God’s demand for love and justice from his people. At this stage the proper foundations for biblical justice are addressed—theology, vision and discipleship. This series is not directly about economics, multiculturalism, environmentalism, social policy or pragmatic solutions (though those areas will be touched upon as we examine at what a “just life” looks like), nor is this series specifically about how to engage in advocacy. What it is about is how to encourage the local church body in their journey to choose and take hold of specific issues within their community/sphere of influence.
