Central to our Christian witness is a commitment to an integration of faith and the mind in ways that guide faithful action in our churches, communities and world.

We believe the gospel should transform every aspect of the world, including policy making. We invite you to consider a broad range of areas in which you can embody faithful action by speaking up to your elected officials.

CURRENT ISSUES

Protect Afghan Allies

Our Afghan allies continue to live under grave threat. Working alongside U.S. military forces, they have risked their lives and that of their families throughout the nearly 20-year conflict to bring peace to the region. Now, with the Taliban takeover, we must honor this sacrifice by ensuring their safety through efforts to evacuate those left in the country, and provide aid and support for Afghanis starting over in a new nation.

Support Refugee Resettlement

President Biden announced his plan to resettle up to 125,000 refugees during FY 2022. In light of the unprecedented refugee crises, this will be lifesaving for refugees, inspiring to other countries, and clearly in our national interest. But it isn’t guaranteed that we will reach this ideal. Continued pressure on the administration is needed. Scripture calls us to defend the widow, orphan and refugee among us (Psalm 82:3—4). The time is now!

Help End Childhood Poverty in the United States

Our tax laws have often penalized our nation’s most vulnerable families. As we follow God’s heart for the poor and vulnerable, we advocate extending or making permanent the recently-expanded child tax credits as a way of lifting millions of children out of poverty while providing limited government and freedom of choice. Join us in asking Congress to make these improvements a permanent part of our tax code.

Sign

Immigration Reform

Our national immigration laws have created a moral, economic and political crisis in America. Initiatives to remedy this crisis have led to polarization in which opponents have misrepresented positions as open borders and amnesty. This false choice has led to a political stalemate at the federal level at a tragic human cost. We urge our nation’s leaders to work together to pass immigration reform that embodies these key principles and will make our nation proud.

Promote International Religious Freedom

Promoting freedom of religion and conscience throughout the world not only protects a fundamental human right, but also acts as a source of stability for all countries. As evangelicals who are called to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves (Mark 12:30–31), we should urge regimes that are severe persecutors on the basis of religious belief to implement religious freedoms while commending emerging democracies in their implementation of freedom of religion.

For the Health of the Nation

We believe the Bible speaks to the most challenging issues we face as a nation. For more than a decade, evangelical Christians across the political spectrum have used “For the Health of the Nation” to apply biblical principles to complex issues. As a resource for Christian discipleship, it is designed to encourage thoughtful evangelical engagement as we work together for the health of the nation. The resource has been the policy guide of the National Association of Evangelicals since 2004.

testimony

“The National Association of Evangelicals models both conviction and cooperation. When the NAE speaks, it is with careful theological reflection and with a tone that never compromises the gospel of Christ or the mission of the church. As the Body of Christ engages often complex questions facing civil society, it is a blessing to have a strong, unifying, biblically-anchored ally in the National Association of Evangelicals.”
