Matthew 5:9-13 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”
The purpose of religious liberty ministry within the church is to protect our ability to share and practice our faith both here in the United States and around the world. The Public Affairs and Religious Liberty departments serve to protect and defend our sacred freedoms through a variety of means, that includes the distribution of literature, the education of members and pastors, and legal advocacy, to name a few.
The funds provided today also help sponsor Liberty Magazine subscriptions to individuals who make decisions that impact our ability to live out our religious convictions. It also supports the legal defense of members that experience religious discrimination in the workplace.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church also advocates on behalf of the religious freedoms of individuals who believe differently than we do. In doing so we honor God’s gracious gift of individual choice and the power of the Holy Spirit to motivate sincere change. We invite you to prayerfully consider giving generously today to help others learn the importance of religious liberty and to assist members with religious liberty needs.
