Good morning welcome to Mountainside. I believe that God’s heart beats for all of humanity. I believe that his salvation will visit every tribe and tongue; it will fall on every ethnicity and nationality. I believe that salvation is offered to all, and that to whomever would receive Christ he gives the right to be called children of God. Therefore I have brothers and sisters from countless cultural and ethnic backgrounds. I believe that the more the local church reflects the universality and diversity of the Body of Christ the more authentic a church it is. Therefore I believe that racism and bigotry is a sin utterly contrary to the heart of the gospel. I hope you believe that too. Pastor Shawn
