On Mission

Dispelling the Darkness

Ephesians 2:10 states that "we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." In part one of this two-part series, Todd reviews many of the initiatives that Watermark has either started or partnered with in the Dallas community. Initiatives that offer any of us who consider ourselves followers of Christ the opportunity to build relationships and be God's light in our world. In part two, Gary Haugen of International Justice Mission speaks out about the abuses that have taken root in our world - abuses like human trafficking, slavery and sexual exploitation - and about IJM's efforts to combat them. Founded on the Bible's call in Isaiah 1:17 to "seek justice, protect the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow," IJM's casework model combats victimization and violence on the level of the individual, and supports functioning public justice systems where the poor urgently need an advocate.
