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.
Call for Immigration Reform
The U.S. Congress has a unique opportunity to finalize critical immigration reforms in a way that blesses our nation and our immigrant neighbors. Our antiquated immigration system has kept families separated, harmed our economy, and left many long-term immigrants without permanent legal status. Our border has been poorly managed. As evangelicals we want our immigration system to honor the dignity of every human being made in God’s image, while also respecting the rule of law. By modernizing our immigration system we can achieve both objectives.Sign
Preserve Global Health Funding to Fight HIV/AIDS
New HIV infections are down 42 percent from just 20 years ago when President George W. Bush made combatting HIV/AIDS a priority. The President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and The Global Fund have inspired generous giving of developed nations to save over 50 million lives since the program started. PEPFAR is in need of reauthorization. Write Congress to urge continued support in the fight to end HIV/AIDS.Sign
Support Pro-Life Safeguards
Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court returned the decision on abortion policy to citizens and the legislators they elect, overturning Roe v. Wade. Still, important federal policies related to pro-life concerns are on the table. For example, the Hyde Amendment has prohibited funding of most abortions through Medicaid. Please urge Congress to maintain Hyde Amendment language in full-year spending bills.Sign
Help End Childhood Poverty in the United States
As we follow God’s heart for the poor and vulnerable, we advocate for extending or making permanent the improved child tax credits. These tax credits directly help support families by alleviating financial pressure for many families. Unfortunately, improvements to the child tax credit expired in 2021. Join us in asking Congress to make the improved child tax credits a permanent part of our tax code.Sign
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.Sign
Support Biblical Immigration Principles
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.Sign
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.Sign

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.Get the Resource

Our resource hub includes thousands of articles, podcasts, statements and more to help you navigate complex issues with biblical clarity. Many resources are related to how Christians can live out a robust public theology on various issues.
“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.”
