Vision America has been informing and mobilizing pastors and their
congregations, across the nation, to get involved in the civic affairs
of their communities. We believe that if even a minority of the
pastors and churches in any community will implement the following
"7 step" program that spells A.M.E.R.I.C.A., we can
dramatically change the cultural landscape thereby restoring the
original vision of our founding fathers for America to be a "...shining
city on a hill"!
the Biblical basis for Christian citizenship
- Speak to the crucial moral issues of the day and
communicate why Christians must be active citizens, influencing
public policy on matters with Biblical perspective.
the congregation to begin taking their civic responsibilities
- Most Christians will not become involved in any
ministry or take action related to cultural change over the
objection or ambivalence of their Pastor. Pastoral leadership makes
the congregation on the 'Why' and 'How' of civic involvement
- Congregations must be informed of their American
religious heritage, understand the original intent of the U. S.
Constitution, and know how to become involved in the citizenship
to vote All eligible adults in the church
- If a person is 18 or older and an American citizen
this is not an option! The goal is 100% registered, 100% voting.
the congregation about important policy and moral issues
- Help create an awareness of pending legislation at
the local, state, and national levels. Address current moral
issues from the pulpit, including sanctity of life, protection
of marriage, family values, protection of religious freedom, and the
need to strengthen and enforce pornography laws.
as appropriate, with other like-minded churches in the community
- Encourage and support other Pastors who are
committed to restoring Judeo-Christian values into the culture
and civil institutions of our nation
- Create or
strengthen a Community Impact Ministry in the church to facilitate
the above activities in an organized manner and to serve as the
church's link to Vision America. We are aiming to utilize
today's technology to inform, educate and activate the congregation,
using email, fax and Internet-based education for training and
