In Solidarity with Our UMC Family

As the Faith in Texas Clergy Steering Committee, we affirm that every human being is created in the image of God––people of every gender and sexual orientation and race and background. There are no second-class citizens, each and every one of us is loved by God. God created all of us in a mosaic of diversity and it is in that diversity that we are most beautiful.

Who We Are

Faith in Texas is a multi-racial faith movement for social justice. We are an affiliate of the Faith in Action national network, the nation’s largest network developing civic leadership in low- and moderate-income faith communities to advocate for economic and racial justice.

Our work involves bringing new voices into Texas public life! Faith in Texas trains teams of lay leaders in local churches, mosques and synagogues, serving low and moderate-income people. These Justice Teams identify systemic problems that affect their community, and move entire congregations to action through powerful policy campaigns.

In our divided state, Faith in Texas creates space for empathy, storytelling, and shared action across the boundaries of race, religion, and economics.

Our Work

Faith in Texas is a multi-racial, multi-faith movement for the common good. Our issue platform comes from deep listening in our member congregations and research led by our volunteer leaders.
