“I want to encourage you as a pastor to join Acts 20:28 Pastors. This is a nonpartisan group that really cares about our country. I know them personally. They have helped us here at Gateway Church to help communicate to our people the principles we are voting on in every election.”

“I’m excited to share a new tool that has proven what we already know. And that is that pastors make a huge impact upon the nation. Acts 20:28 Pastors has proven that when a pastor receives the right information about his congregation and begins to lead, there is a 30% increase in voting by Christians.”

The only hope for any nation
A united Body of Christ has the potential to be leaders with the greatest influence and impact on culture. To do this we must activate people of faith to bring spiritual awakening in our nation. Acts 20:28 operates from a Christian worldview. We support the protection and/or advancement of the following 10 Guiding Truths as the foundation of our work.
When righteous people govern a nation, its citizens can rejoice, and when people who are unrighteous govern, they groan (Proverbs 29:2). One hindrance to revival is when godly people who are free to elect who govern them do not vote, pray or run for office. The church is the hope of the world. Christians should be salt and light to the culture and influence the nation but not place their hope in any political party or candidate. All Christians are instructed to pray at all times for, submit to, and minister to those in authority.
Human life begins at conception, continues until natural death, and is to be protected.
Biblical Family, Marriage & Gender
God created man and woman in the image of God, and biblical marriage is between one man and one woman who raise children to honor Him. Parents have freedom and choice in how their children are educated.
Religious Freedom is essential to the foundation of a healthy society. As Christians in America, we uphold the Constitution and all its protections including religious freedom, speech, liberty, and life. The government is God’s instrument for governing society and not dictating the worship or freedom of its citizens.
Those in Need
The poor, orphans, widows, foreigners, and frail are of special concern to God. The Bible teaches individual work ethic and self-support for our families when we are able, and the local church is instructed to help those in need instead of excessive reliance on government perpetuating a government dependency entitlement mindset. The government should secure and protect our nation and provide biblical stewardship of its citizenship and national immigration.
Biblical Justice & Rehabilitation
God is both just and the creator of forgiveness and second chances. Thus, our justice and prison system should protect the innocent, punish offenders, and be rehabilitation focused in order to reduce crime in society and better its citizens. The government has the authority to and should defend our nation and preserve the right of citizens to protect themselves.
Equality & Unity
All races and ethnicities are created by God and should be treated with biblical justice and compassion. Unity in the church is essential. We serve all biblically-based churches in America regardless of size, race or denomination. We work with those who align with us in our faith and all freedoms.
The government exists for the people and should steward their resources and economic freedom according to the same biblical principles that apply to people, without excessive debt, intrusion, regulation, or taxation. How we handle finances shows our heart.
Israel & The World
Israel has a special place in the heart of God and should be prayed for, supported, and defended as a nation and as a people. God calls us to reach our city, our state, our nation, the ethnic groups in our nation and share to the ends of the world with His message.
The earth and the animal life on it are God’s creation and should be stewarded well by man – not worshiped or exploited.
Getting involved as an Acts 20:28 Pastor can change your church, city and nation.
We partner with pastors who are willing to learn more about how to mobilize their congregation toward active civic involvement. We want to help you build your resources, tools, and relationships in order to offer you support and guidance as you engage your congregation.
Civic engagement involves working to make a difference in our societies’ civic life. To make the difference, we need to cultivate the combination of awareness, skills, values, and motivation.
A person morally and civically responsible identifies himself or herself as a member of a broader social system and therefore considers social issues to be at least partly his or her own; such a person is able to see the moral and civic aspects of matters, to make and support informed moral and civic decisions and, where necessary, to take action.
