Ephesians 2:11-18 NIV
"Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)—remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit."
Compelled by the reconciling power of the Gospel, Westover is committed to the ongoing work of engaging in Christ-centered racial reconciliation, which include breaking down barriers of division, hostility and separation caused by the sin of racism. At the heart of the Gospel is the message and ministy of reconcilation (Corinthians 5:14-21), where through the Cross of Christ, we are reconciled both to God and to one another. As the reconciling people of God, we are further compelled by the heavenly vision of a day when people of all ethnicities and cultures, who have been reconciled to God through faith in Christ, will be gathered together in perfect harmony to worship God forever and fully restored to God's good intention for humankind (Revelation 7:9-10).
