Justice and Mercy Ministries

“But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?  Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:17-18 (ESV)            

Citylife believes that a heart authentically moved by the gospel will respond in an outpouring of love. Loving our neighbor as Jesus loved us means opening our hearts to the Spirit’s transformative work, embracing real-life opportunities to re-order priorities, be uncomfortable, and loosen our hold on things that have become idols, whether material or philosophical.
