Asylum, Refugee, and Immigration
Ministries of Faith in Action
“Cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, please for the widow.” (Isaiah 1:16-17)
It is our duty as Christians to love our neighbor as ourselves and to treat others how we wish to be treated. The Asylum, Refugee, and Immigration task force serves the purpose of spreading God’s grace by providing shelter, food, and more for impoverished communities and those seeking refuge in the United States.
