The congregation, meeting on November 16, 2008, unanimously passed our Peace and Justice Statement:
We, the members and friends of Desert Heritage Church declare that we are a Peace and Justice Church.
We will endeavor to carry out the Biblical mandate to work towards Peace and Justice in
our church, our community and our world.
Peace and justice go together. To have peace there must be justice for all peoples.
No one will be denied into the full life, leadership and ministry of the church due to color of skin, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, language or status.
The Peace and Justice Ministry exists to enable Desert Heritage Church
to fulfill its call to be a peace and justice church.
We will do this by investigating peace and justice issues,
educating the congregation about peace and justice issues,
and encouraging the congregation to direct action.
