About Faith & Public Policy
No man can possibly be benevolent or religious, to the full extent of his obligations,
without concerning himself, to a greater or less extent,
with the affairs of human government.
Our vision is to see the church regain its influence on our culture in order to restore our nation to its Biblical foundation.
Faith and Public Policy provides church leaders with information, resources, and tools to equip them to support and defend a Judeo-Christian worldview in the public square.
The focus of Faith and Public Policy is to educate, equip, and encourage the church as it works to uphold a Judeo-Christian worldview in all spheres of society, culture, and public policy.
• We educate – by providing information about moral issues, social and cultural concerns, and by analyzing legislation based on a Judeo-Christian worldview.
• We equip – by providing tools and resources for churches to establish and/or grow their own ministries designed to defend truth and a Biblical worldview.
• We encourage – by connecting and building relationships among pastors and leaders who share similar goals and purposes.
To accomplish these purposes, we support church leadership with the resources needed to establish or expand a culture impact ministry. It`s our hope that the churches across the nation will utilize our free resources and boldly engage the culture for Christ.
Statement of Faith
A Statement of Faith is a written declaration of our position on matters that pertain to the essentials of historical Christianity.
We believe that the Bible is inspired by God in its entirety, and is without error in the original autographs, a complete and final written revelation from God.
(2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe that there is only one God, who is eternal and immutable, and manifests Himself in three distinct Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)
We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah (John 1:36-42), born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35), totally without sin (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26), God in human flesh (John 1:1 & 14, John 20:28) the One Who died on the cross for our sins (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), was buried (John 19:40-42), rose again from the dead on the third day (John 2:19), and ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven, where He now intercedes for us who believe in Him. (Mark 16:19, Acts 7:56, 1 Timothy 2:5)
We believe that Jesus Christ is going to return in the clouds for His church before the tribulation that is coming upon the whole earth (1 Thessalonians 4:16), and that He will return with His saints and all His holy angels to the earth at the end of the tribulation, and set up His kingdom on earth, ruling and reigning forever and ever. (Matthew 24:30, Revelation 19:13)
We believe that all humanity is lost and born with a sinful nature, and can only be saved by a personal faith in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and not by any human merit or performance. (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)
We believe in a real/literal devil, called Satan, who, along with all his fallen angels, demons, and evil spirits, are destined to spend eternity in hell, and now seek to deceive the world, defeat the believers, and destroy the work of God, but can be resisted by believers, who are protected by God, the Holy Spirit and the intercession of Jesus Christ our Lord. (Genesis 3:1, Job 1:6-12, Matthew 4:1-11, Luke 22:31-32, 1 John 4:4, Revelation 20:10)
We believe that heaven is a real place where the saved will dwell forever, and that hell is a literal place of torment where unbelievers will suffer forever. (John 14:1-3, Revelation 20:11-15, Revelation 21:8, Revelation 22:5)
We believe that genuine believers are born again by the Holy Spirit of God, and are indwelt, baptized into the body of Christ, the true church, and sealed by the Holy Spirit, and thus, unable to be separated from the love of Jesus Christ. (John 3:1-6, Acts 1:4-5, Romans 8:35-39, Ephesians 1:13-14)
We believe that all believers need to be filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit to live a godly life and to be bold in our witness for the Lord. (Romans 8:13-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18)
We believe in the spiritual unity of all genuine believers in the Lord Jesus Christ which is manifested by the spiritual gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit`s presence through His love. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 5:22-23, Ephesians 4:8 -12)
We believe that the nation of Israel has a special place in God`s plan, and that all of the promises of God to Israel will be fulfilled both now and in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in His millennium. (Genesis 12:3, Psalm 122:1)
