American Christian Civil Rights Movement will provide a forum and vehicle to unite all Christians in building communities that promote and protect the exercise of Christ-centered values through prayer, political and economic action.
U.S. Government, through leadership and action, has turned against Christians, acting in contradiction to the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment that provides for religious liberty. Increasing influence of mainstream media and public education officials and school curriculums, has moved the country away from Christian-based culture. This has resulted in a culture that dismisses Christian values and threatens or renders illegal the expression of those values.
ACCRM is non-denominational, open to all who share the organization’s values.
–> Natural Law God is creator and designer. The Bible exists as a body of unchanging moral principles that form the basis of all human conduct. These ‘rules’ are not created by government but should be recognized by government to form laws consistent with these principles. “All people are endowed with certain ‘inalienable’ rights…”
–> Religion We believe in a Creator of all things visible and invisible, a ‘designer’ who created mankind purposefully, with an indestructible soul infused from the moment of conception, destined for everlasting life, who through his Son Jesus Christ revealed Himself to mankind. We follow Biblical law as God’s law, unchanged by mood or region or time. Christ is our King.
–> Right to Life Life begins at the moment of conception when body and soul unite. The unborn child is entitled to all the protections of a human being.
–> Marriage Marriage is a God-instituted union between one man and one woman.
–> Family The Family is the central unit in civilized society and should be valued, promoted, and protected. Parents are responsible for the health, welfare and education of their children.
–> Education The formal schooling of children should be a free marketplace without government monopoly, favoritism in funding or policy implementation. Parents are the first educators of their children. The teaching of moral values – right from wrong — is integral to their instruction, and should not be compromised by public school authorities.
–> Government ACCRM accepts the Biblical Ten Commandments as the foundational ‘code of behavior’ upon which civil and moral law should be based. Government at all levels should be protective of the expression of these values.
–> States Rights We support the right of States to act in all issues not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the central government. Government closest to home is most reflective of community values. The government that governs least governs best;
–> Fiscal and Ethical Responsibility Government at all levels should spend within its means, balancing expenses with revenue, minimizing cost and maximizing efficiency, providing services only as necessary for the common good.
–> Business Business shall be conducted reflecting the equal rights of Christians who choose to display their faith without recourse, to include the ability to open and read their Bible and the freedom to display their belief in their workstations, as any other person’s freedom of religious beliefs.
