Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation
Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation are words that were first used by the World Council of Churches (WCC) in an appeal to all Christian churches to make public commitments and to undertake common action on threats to life in the areas of justice, peace and integrity of creation. The phrase JPIC is a way of describing the Christian’s responsibility to make God’s reign visible in the world by bringing Good News to the poor and excluded, exposing oppression and living in solidarity with those on the edges of society.
