The All People Initiative works to express the EFCA's heart for immigrants by providing care and resourcing local churches to serve immigrants in the United States.
An immigrant moves to a new country to build a better life for themselves. Since the beginnings of humanity, the Lord commanded His people to care for the immigrant:
"The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God" (Leviticus 19:34).
Every year, immigrants come to the United States seeking a better life for their families. Some come from places where Jesus is well-known, but many come from parts of the world where the name of Jesus is foreign. What better hospitality to show our new neighbors than the love of Christ?
Through both of our immigrant ministries, Immigrant Hope and Immigrant Mission, we seek the newcomers in our neighborhoods by offering them helpful legal resources through Immigrant Hope and by equipping churches to disciple immigrants through Immigrant Mission.
