“Jesus was not a white man; He was not a black man. He came from that part of the world that touches Africa and Asia and Europe. Christianity is not a white man’s religion and don’t let anybody ever tell you that it’s white or black. Christ belongs to all people; He belongs to the whole world.”

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him…” —Genesis 1:27
The Bible is clear that there is no room for racism in God’s plan for His people. Each person you interact with today, each one you pass on the road or in the store, every single man, woman and child is a unique creation of God Almighty. He loves them—and you—with a divine love so strong we can’t possibly comprehend it.
While our imperfection, our rebellion and our sin creates a divide between us and the One who created us—and therefore a division between us and others—God formed a plan to close that gap and draw us back to Him. That plan was Jesus Christ, who heals and changes our hearts and gives us the ability to love others and God as we should.
