The Dallas Area Christian
Progressive Alliance (DACPA) was founded by grassroots
Christians with a mission to live the radical love,
compassion and justice of Jesus and to promote these values in
religious and public discourse . DACPA uses Matthew 25, a
chapter of the Bible in which Jesus reminds us that we are judged by
how we treat the hungry, the stranger, and the prisoners, as a guide
to fulfilling this mission.
Then the righteous will answer
him, "Lord, when was it that we saw
you hungry and gave you food, or
thirsty and gave you something to
drink? And when was it that we saw
you a stranger and welcomed you, or
naked and gave you clothing? And
when was it that we saw you sick or
in prison and visited you?" And the
king will answer them, "Truly I tell
you, just as you did it to one of
the least of these who are members
of my family, you did it to me."
As Christians, we are called to
address poverty, oppression, injustice, and to protect creation. See
our Statements of Belief.
