What is a Matthew 25 church?
Matthew 25:31–46 calls all of us to actively engage in the world around
us, so our faith comes alive and we wake up to new possibilities.
Convicted by this passage, both the 222nd and 223rd General Assemblies
(2016 and 2018) exhorted the PC(USA) to act boldly and compassionately
to see our neighbors through Jesus’ eyes and serve those who are
marginalized or in need — people who are hungry, thirsty, naked, sick,
imprisoned, strangers, poor or oppressed in other ways and in need
