Statement on Immigration

We believe that all people should be treated humanely and with empathy. We encourage thoughtful dialogue on immigration that is rooted in the assumption of the common humanity and equal value of all people. As Christians, we recognize that Jesus cared for, and identified with, the poor, the migrant, and the oppressed throughout his life and ministry. We therefore see it as a central duty of Christianity to care for and include one another, especially the most vulnerable members of society, including migrants and refugees. We strive to remove barriers because we are better when we are together.
