To proclaim and defend the God-given gift of religious freedom which is integral to our prophetic role as Seventh-day Adventists® and primary evangelistic efforts

  • Maintain a litigation fund to defend Adventists' religious convictions in the workplace
  • Involve members through the North American Religious Liberty Association, which together with Liberty magazine and the General Conference sponsors events in Washington and elsewhere, such as the annual Religious Liberty dinner, congressional visitation and training sessions for legislative liaison work
  • Interact with public officials and represent our church viewpoint to policy makers
  • Produce regular weekly television and radio programs broadcasted nationally and internationally
