How you exercise this right, and responsibility of voting will have far-reaching consequences for every area of your life.​

Concerning the role of Christians in social and political matters, the Bible instructs us to:


“I urge, then, first of all that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all Godliness and holiness.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2


“If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14 Expose


“Have nothing to do with fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5:11

Improve the Community:

“See the trouble we are in: Jerusalem is in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and we will no longer be in disgrace.” Nehemiah 2:17

Seek Justice:

“Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice.” Isaiah 1:16-17

Oppose Ungodly Rulers:

“You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting...” Daniel 5:27

Uphold Christian Standards:

“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.” Matthew 5:13

Disciple the Nations:

“Make disciples of all nations... teaching them to obey everything I have commanded...” Matthew 28:19-20
