Seventh-day Adventists have been vocal and persistent advocates of religious freedom for every person since the earliest days of our church. Perhaps it is because of the Fundamental Belief on the “Nature of Humanity” that states “Man and woman were made in the image of God with individuality, the power and freedom to think and to do. Though created free beings, each is an indivisible unity of body, mind, and spirit, dependent upon God for life and breath and all else.” Surely, our advocacy of religious freedom is rooted in our understanding of who we are before God.

Here in the Pacific Union, the Church State Council is dedicated to promoting religious freedom. Through education, legislative advocacy, and litigation, the Council works to fight religious discrimination, bigotry, and intolerance. The Council provides legal representation for persons of all faiths who suffer religious discrimination. This is a ministry concerned with “matters of conscience,” and is an expression of some of our deepest and most fervently held beliefs.
