Faith & Public Policy

As Christians, we have "Dual Citizenship"

The apostle Paul writes in Philippians 3:20, For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

We also have been placed by God as a citizen in the nation and neighborhood where we currently live according to Paul’s words in Acts 17:26, and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.”

Our Dual Citizenship guides our attitudes and engagement in civic life

Our “dual citizenship” as Christians means our faith in Jesus guides our attitudes and engagement in every domain, including public policy.  We are to “think Biblically” as dual citizens standing for justice and Abraham was once called by God to do in Genesis 18:19, “For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice”. 

We are to stand for Biblical righteous and justice with the character of humility as described in Ephesians 4:1-3, “walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Voting and Election Resources

With this in mind, our Calvary Church Faith and Public Policy Ministry has created voting resources to help guide and equip our Church family. Our prayer is for God’s will to be done and for Jesus to be glorified in our neighborhoods and nation! (Check back here for updated resources as elections approach.)

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans and is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens to celebrate our most beloved freedom; the freedom to humbly come before God and seek His guidance in prayer.
