Richard Twiss is just one of the many people of color to have experienced instances of implied discrimination in church and who can attest that uniracial congregations could possibly be more efficient and less offensive to ethnicity, race, and culture. Is it really possible to establish a church for all nations without other races being stepped on? Wouldn't it be better to have uniracial congregations in today's racialized society? This chapter addresses arguments that are in favor of uniracial congregations, keeping in mind that the book still asserts for multiracial congregations. In doing this, this chapter looks into pragmatic, theological, cultural, activist, and sociological reasons.

Keywords:   uniracial congregation, discrimination, Richard Twiss, all nations, congregations, racialized society
