We believe in America as a providential nation, established by God as a beacon of faith, hope, freedom and opportunity. We believe that God wants America to serve as a symbol of His desire that all human beings live free and prosperous lives. We consider it our responsibility to preserve America as a nation whose God is the Lord, and that our relationship with Him is the key to our national strength, safety, security and success.

 

We embrace our citizenship responsibility to vote our Christian values and take an active part in the civic life of our community and country. We reject the spurious idea that separation of church and state requires Christians and churches to stay out of the public policy debate. Indeed, we assert that America is and always has been a Christian nation. Our country has no “official” faith and that is as it should be. However, our culture is decidedly and undeniably Christian. The salvation of our nation lies in keeping it so. 

 

True salvation expresses itself in every dimension life. Salt is worthless when left in the shaker. Light is useless when hidden under a basket. If politics is corrupt, it needs the salt of the Gospel. If politics is dark, it needs the light of the Gospel to illuminate, cleanse and sanctify it by the power of God’s Word.

 

We need Godly leadership in every level of government. For “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” Proverbs 29:2

 

We oppose abortion as well as so called same sex marriage, gay rights and transgender rights because these things are in rebellion against the Word of God. They bring the curse upon our country. Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.”

We oppose the move toward secularism, socialism, atheism and Marxism which have become entrenched among the leftists and liberals of our nation and have captured the minds of our youth through miseducation in our schools and colleges.

 

We are praying for a Third Great Awakening in our country to purge us from the sin which has spread like a plague. We are asking God to pour out His Spirit upon America and bring our nation to repentance. If God was willing to spare sodom and Gomorrah if he found ten righteous, surely He will not overlook the millions of Christians who are praying for our country. 

 

This is not politics, but prophetic ministry. Moses went back to Egypt and told Pharaoh to let God’s people go. Elijah challenged Arab and Jezebel for troubling Israel. Nathan rebuked his own friend, King David for having abused his power for his own selfish ends. John the Baptist, accused Herod of the sin of adultery. Jesus told Pilate that he had no power over Him, except what was given from above that the scripture might be fulfilled. 

 

None of these were political acts, although the secular mind might view them that way. They were acts of prophetic ministry, pointing out to those in authority that their thoughts and actions were in rebellion against God. The church today should do nothing less. It is part of our mandate to save the nation, and create an atmosphere where the Gospel is unhindered by governmental power and public policy.
