Identity & Value
Placing value upon humanity
The truth is that every person is made in the image of God with equal value and inherent capacity.
Genesis 1:27; Galatians 3:28; Proverbs 22:2
The heart of Colour Sisterhood is that every women would know that “there is a God in heaven and a company of others on earth who believe in them.” ‘The Whisper’ is personal. It whispers “be found” – be found in His love, be found in His wisdom and goodness, be found in His peace and purpose. Be found so that others may find hope through you.”
A foundation of value and identity – as a beloved, strong, and capable daughter of the King – is crucial for understanding one’s purpose and fulfilling your God-given mission.
"Tell them there is a God in heaven who believes in them."
PURPOSE & MISSION
United in friendship and cause
Made in the image of God, every person has inherent capacity and potential. We are intended to steward God’s very good creation, recognising and cultivating the image of God in every human being.
Genesis 1:28; Jeremiah 29:11; Ephesians 2:10
When the truth of every person’s value is distorted and humanity lives without a sense of their identity and purpose, disconnected from God, each other and creation, various expressions of injustice result, such as conflict, discrimination, and oppression.
We believe in a God of justice who involves his people in actively bringing about restoration of broken relationships. Justice involves both social responsibility and structural justice and requires response at both an individual and collective level.
Isaiah 30:18; Isaiah 61:8; 2 Corinthians 5:18; Micah 6:8; Revelation 21:1-4; Isaiah 1:17; Isaiah 10:1-2
With a desire to tangibly express the love of God and to seek justice, we desire peace for the cities that we call home and for our global community. We seek to respond both locally and globally, recognising that our ‘neighbour’ is not merely defined by proximity or similarity.
Isaiah 58:6-12; Zechariah 7:9; 1 Timothy 6:18; Jeremiah 33:6 & 9; Luke 10:25-37; Proverbs 31:20
As followers of Jesus Christ, who came to bring good news to the poor, our mission is to be agents of love, justice and peace and to create opportunity for people to overcome obstacles to reaching their potential.
Luke 4:18-19; Acts 1:8; Matthew 23:23; Luke 10:25-37.
Every act of love and every action that contributes even in a seemingly small way to bringing about peace and right relationships, is an expression of worship of King Jesus, co-labouring in His mission of reconciliation and restoration.
"We do justice when we give all human beings their due as creations of God. Doing justice includes not only the righting of wrongs, but generosity and social concern, especially toward the poor and vulnerable. This kind of life reflects the character of God. It consists of a broad range of activities, from simple fair and honest dealings with people in daily life, to regular, radically generous giving of your time and resources, to activism that seeks to end particular forms of injustice, violence, and oppression."
Children. Sisters. Nations.
Throughout the Bible we see God’s concern for the weakest and most vulnerable in society – orphans, widows, immigrants or foreigners, and the poor. Tim Keller explains that, “Today, this quartet would be expanded to include the refugee, the migrant worker, the homeless and many single parents and elderly people.” God calls himself a father to the fatherless and a defender of widows and gave Israel laws and instruction concerning treatment of these groups of people.
Orphans and vulnerable children to rescue:
Children without a safe family or environment, unable to access their rights to education, safety and care.
Sisters to come alongside
Women and girls who are vulnerable to violence, lack access to education, access to equality or to fulfil their potential.
Nations to believe in
Nations across the world who are experiencing humanitarian crisis or conflict, poverty and injustice and locally, people fleeing conflict or persecution and arriving on our shores.
As a Colour Sisterhood, we endeavour to provide a range of projects that reflect our heart to honour God and make a difference for children, sisters, and nations.
