We envision a day when all bible believing Christians, regardless of ethnicity, stand for what we say we believe.
To create a sociopolitical church that promotes a biblical worldview, such as the R.I.S.E Principles: Responsible government, Individual liberty and fidelity, Strong Family Values, and Economic Empowerment.
Our work is based on those biblical principles and values that aim to faithfully fulfill Christ’s mission, as articulated in Luke 4:18 and Acts 26:18. We believe that the gospel message has both political and public policy implications, which include long term ministry goals such as “proclaiming freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, and releasing of the oppressed.”
Our aim is to create a “paradigm shift” in the way people, in general, and the African American populace, in particular, view matters of faith, race and public policy. FJI pledges to vigorously challenge “liberal” ideology with those conservative principles, such as the R.I.S.E Principles, essential to promoting and sustaining stable and prosperous family and society.
