The Session at IPC has engaged in discussing racial reconciliation and adopting and implementing PCA statements about racial reconciliation. The following documents are approved by the Session, and we encourage all IPC members to read and become familiar with them.
As a church, consistent with biblical teaching and our reformed world and life view, we believe in common grace insights. Therefore, while we find the resources below very helpful in understanding the depth and breadth of racial reconciliation, we do not endorse every idea of every author.
