The State of City Church 2014

There is no gap at all between evangelism and doing justice... Evangelism is not an end in itself. It is the means to an end: restoring the image bearers’ capacity for relationship and worship, where the true Creator God in named, known, and blessed... And doing justice is likewise the means to an end—shalom, that rich Hebrew word for peace... The work of justice is to restore the conditions that make image bearing possible
