Second Anniversary Thanksgiving Worship

Covenant of the Rainbow: Towards a Truly Inclusive Church*

Second Anniversary Thanksgiving Worship

The ‘Covenant of the Rainbow: Towards a Truly Inclusive Church’ campaign, initiated by Christian organizations, local churches and theological student fellowships from diverse backgrounds in Hong Kong on March 17, 2013, will be celebrating the campaign’s second anniversary on May 9, 2015.

Christ’s resurrection has given us new life. We believe God loves everyone. We affirm all lives and uphold equality for all people regardless of their race, gender, language, age, occupation, sexual orientation and gender identity, or level of abilities. Therefore, we call upon the church to promote an inclusive and equal community where people embrace each other with respect and acceptance. The core value of the gospel is love, not hatred and discrimination.

We sincerely invite you to come celebrate with us, to praise God, and continue to support the creation of inclusive church communities where all are welcome, and to uphold human dignity and equality for all in God’s world.

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not reached perfection in love.” (1 John 4:18)
