Global Justice Ministries is an organization of Christian professionals dedicated to the promotion of God’s Kingdom on earth. As a nondenominational organization of believers, this assembly of trained men and women strives to utilize their collective experience, education and training to meet real world challenges, and to bring about organizational and institutional change within the world but especially within territories in Africa, the Caribbean and Brazil where the help is needed most. Toward that end, Global Justice Missions endeavors to train and mobilize Christian professionals who are both lawyers, paralegals, government personnel, Social Workers, Economists and elected officials to come together under a Christian banner to improve the quality of life in order to advance the Kingdom of God throughout the world.
The foundational scripture which forms the basis of our organizational creed is found in the book of Matthew 6:33 “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all of its righteousness...” Psalm 45:6 “The scepter of justice is the scepter of the Kingdom of God”; Isaiah 1:17, where the prophet told us to "do good, seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, and plead for the widow", and in the Book of Mark 9:23 which says “If thou can believe, all things are possible, to him who believes!”
GJM’s Commitment: Obliged by God's priority to work on behalf of the poor and disenfranchised to see that the spirit and letter of social, economic, political and legal justice is implemented throughout the world; GJM is committed to advance the international struggle for God’s Justice. This is accomplished by making known the extensiveness of the reality of injustice in the world and moving the body of Christ to action by providing a powerful paradigm through the use of local, national and international courts of law, political and social activism and legislative reform. Our goal is to bring long term substantive reformation to the poor and forgotten communities desperate for change.
Constrained by God's priority to "Seek Justice" at every level, Global Justice Missions is dedicated to the principle that the spirit of Justice in men has as its core, God’s value system of integrity and a godly character, which if firmly seeded will give birth to a spirit of fairness and equity in men. The bible says "That the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof...” (Psalm 24:1), accordingly we see governmental leaders as mere stewards over the earth and we believe that leaders therefore must have scriptural core values of equity and Justice that God places on the fair sharing of the world’s resources among all of God's people.
Championing the National and International Struggle for Social, Economic and Legal Justice in the World...
We see ourselves as soldiers in the army of the Lord; righteously and boldly proclaiming the word of the Lord in the area of Justice, for the thousands of orphans, widows and oppressed in the world. Believing that our combined and consistent effort to see Justice done in the world is a part of the divine plan of the Lord to establish the Kingdom of God on the earth, where there is no poverty, no slavery and no injustice. We believe ourselves to be the very arms of God extended into the World to answer the call to Justice for the lost and the left out; by establishing a just order in this world following the very dictates of God himself and by exposing the face of injustice by challenging traditions of corruption in government and business sectors throughout the world.
