About McCormick Road Baptist Church

McCormick Road Baptist Church is a vibrant community of believers committed to serving our congregation, neighbors, and the wider community. As a church deeply rooted in faith and beliefs, we recognize the importance of actively addressing social issues that affect our community members. Our commitment to racial justice and equality is at the heart of our values.

Racial Justice Committee

Our Racial Justice Committee aims to promote racial equality, justice, and inclusion within our church and the greater Gainesville community. We understand that systemic racism continues to impact the lives of individuals and communities, and we are dedicated to dismantling these structures and fostering a community of understanding, respect, and equality.

Our Mission

The mission of our Racial Justice Committee is to educate, advocate, and take action against racial discrimination, prejudice, and inequality. We believe that everyone deserves equal rights, opportunities, and respect, regardless of their race or ethnicity.

Community Engagement

We actively engage with community members, local organizations, and leaders to address racial justice issues in Gainesville. By collaborating with like-minded individuals and groups, we work towards creating a more inclusive and equitable society for all.

What We Do

Educational Initiatives

Education is central to our efforts. We organize workshops, seminars, and guest speaker events to raise awareness about racial justice and promote dialogue within our congregation and the wider community. These events provide opportunities to learn about the history of racial inequality, systemic racism, and effective strategies for promoting racial justice.

Advocacy and Outreach

We believe in being proactive advocates for racial justice. Our committee strives to raise awareness of racial inequality, injustice, and discrimination through various advocacy campaigns, including peaceful protests, petition signings, and partnerships with local organizations. By amplifying marginalized voices, we aim to influence policy changes that promote equality and fairness.

Community Partnerships

We actively seek partnerships with local community organizations working towards racial justice. By joining forces with like-minded groups, we can have a greater impact and create lasting change. Together, we engage in initiatives such as community dialogues, cultural events, and collaborative projects that celebrate diversity and combat racism.
