Compassion and Justice

Quest Local Mission Partners

Our denomination's efforts to "love mercy and do justice"

Holistic discipleship means loving God and loving our neighbors with both our words and our actions. Our core commitments of Compassion and Justice are a way to meet both direct, felt needs and to contribute to long-term, sustainable, and systemic change in the world as a response to Christ’s teachings, death, and resurrection.  Read more about our vision and commitments
