Christian Nationalism: Should Christians Oppose It?

Join us for a three session discussion beginning Sunday, January 22 and continuing on January 29 and February 5, each at 11 a.m. at First Baptist Church.

Christian Nationalism is a political ideology and cultural framework that tries to merge our identities as Americans and Christians. In other words, Christian nationalism suggests that to be a true American, one has to be Christian and, really, one has to be a white Christian that espouses certain political views claiming them from a Christian perspective.
– Amanda Tyler, Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty.

As Baptists, we claim a long legacy of men and women who have risked their lives to bravely advocate for religious liberty for all. The Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty (BJC) continues this legacy of defending the right of everyone to choose a faith journey free from government coercion or penalty, while leading honest and open conversations about our past failings and how we can forge a more inclusive future.
