Churches in America face legal challenges that were unimaginable even a few years ago.
Today, it is not a question of if churches will be threatened or sued for standing true to God’s Word – the question is when and where such cases will arise.
Alliance Defending Freedom wants to protect and prepare the church for the legal landscape ahead because the good of our society depends upon the ability of churches to speak freely. When the church is silent, the culture suffers.
What We're Doing About It
Alliance Defending Freedom defends the church in crucial cases to preserve and restore religious freedom in America. We have played a role in significant victories at all levels of the courts and even in the United States Supreme Court.
