Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy Information

ACSWP can help you reflect upon the role of social justice in our common ministry. Recently published material includes:

  • Religious Freedom without Discrimination (available here) which affirms our denomination’s long history of championing religious freedom while at the same time decrying the use of such language for persecution and discrimination.
  • Honest Patriotism (available here) which encourages us to claim a place as people of faith in public discourse, championing honesty as a vital Christian virtue and challenging recent political language which degrades the value of truth.
  • Precautionary Principle: Managing Technological Risks to Protect Humanity and Our Planet (available here) which affirms our denomination’s commitment to protecting people and the environment from risks of damage from the introduction of new technologies–products like pesticides and food additives.

These documents join a comprehensive group of policy statements covering a range of issues including environmental concerns, economic justice, racial equity, health care policy, and just taxation. All of these resources are readily available to you and your congregations.

ACSWP is excited about serving as a resource to the denomination and we stand ready to assist you in any way we can to bring social justice issues into the life of the church. Please do not hesitate to contact us at if we can be of any help in creating robust educational and service opportunities for your mid-councils and congregations.
