Organizational Statement of Faith


When asked what the greatest commandment was Jesus told the disciples, Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself (Matt. 22:37-39). Jesus' command was not about what we must believe and do, but about who we must love. Loving God and loving neighbor is to be a foundational theme for Christian understanding of community development. In the end, we want people to know that the source of transformation both at an individual and community level is not The Sanctuary Community Development Corporation, not our money, our ideas, people, programs or technology, but that it is God's love for us and through us that brings real change. It is the love of Christ that will transform us all, the poor, the non-poor, the church, and North Minneapolis.
