Racial Injustice & Solidarity Statement
Collective Community believes that God cares deeply about justice. Therefore, we do too. We acknowledge the racial injustice that our country has long been accustomed to, and how white supremacy is a dark and corrupt evil that must be dismantled. We believe followers of Jesus have a unique role in the cultural landscape of racial injustice due to our Biblical stance toward human beings. The Bible is explicitly clear; all people have been created in the image of God, which means that all people are of the same worth, value, and respect. There is no superiority based upon the social construct of race. All people are utterly valued and worthy because they have been created in the image of God. Therefore, any system, policy, law, or individual that challenges that truth is something or someone we fundamentally disagree with—and action must be taken in order that justice may prevail. We stand in solidarity with our black brothers and sisters and we stand in solidarity with anyone suffering injustice.
We hope and pray that as the grace of Jesus has reconciled us back into a relationship with God, we would follow Him into reconciling and healing relationships between people. May we do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.

Our Mission for Collective
At collective we are all about bringing people in to belonging and sending people into purpose. We believe this is happens through reaching people with the gospel, developing a supporting community for people to feel at loved, and then sending them out into the purpose God has created for their life.
What We Believe
The most universal confession of faith in the Christian church is the Apostles’ Creed, which identifies the one true God as triune – one God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
