Defending Religious Freedom

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.
