Immigration is one of the most complicated issues of our time. Voices on all sides argue strongly for action and change. Christians find themselves torn between the desire to uphold laws and the call to minister to the vulnerable.

Unfortunately, many Christians allow their views on immigration to be shaped more by voices in the world than by a balanced, Wholistic perspective based upon God's Word. Fortunately, The Wesleyan Church together with other Evangelical leaders are providing Biblical guidance for believers. Links to statements on immigration by each of these sponsoring organizations can be found in the right hand column of this blog.

Please RSVP to Jenny Hwang at, Or call 443- 451-1969. There is no registration fee.
