At a time when so much is changing, we have to ask ourselves, “How are we equipping and protecting our leaders? How are we strengthening our ministries for this generation and the next?” We should not have to bear these challenges alone. A partnership with ADF Ministry Alliance can help.

What would it mean for your ministry to lose its freedom to operate according to its faith?

We believe churches and ministries are essential in illuminating truth and eternal hope in our society. This light—the Gospel—is one that culture and many of our laws seek to dim.

That’s why Alliance Defending Freedom established the Church & Ministry Alliance.  

We exist to safeguard your religious freedom from cultural pressures and an overreaching government. We want to equip your ministry with legal support and education so you can freely pursue your calling.

Our team is comprised of Christian attorneys and advocates who share your commitment to and excitement for the Gospel. By joining the ADF Church & Ministry Alliance, you can confidently know that your ministry stands on a firm legal foundation.

Is your church legally prepared?

In today’s culture, it is not a question of if churches will be threatened or sued for standing true to God’s Word – the question is when and where such cases will arise. Laws are changing and churches across the country are facing threats to their religious freedom. Your church needs to be prepared.

How is your church preparing to handle sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) issues?

SOGI issues can arise from employees, volunteers, youth groups, use of your facilities, and more. Your church needs to be equipped to handle potential issues and be aware of changing laws, so you know how to respond. You also need access to trusted legal counsel when questions arise.

Are your church’s governing documents written in a way that provides legal protection for your church?
Your bylaws, policies, and other governing documents can help protect the religious freedom of your church. These documents can serve as evidence of your church’s beliefs, so it is imperative that they clearly communicate what your church believes to your congregation, community, and, if necessary, the courts.

How would your church address religious freedom legal challenges?
Opponents have treated churches unfairly by denying churches equal access to government grants or property, manipulating zoning codes to prevent churches from using their own buildings, forcing churches to comply with unconstitutional regulations that violate their beliefs, and more. Your church needs to know its rights and have a legal advocate who can help whenever you need it.

Church of God of Prophecy has partnered with ADF Church Alliance to prepare and protect your church – for these issues and other religious liberty challenges.

ADF Church Alliance is a membership program that provides legal help so you can freely preach and operate your church in accordance with Christian principles. The program acts as a hub for churches to gain access to experienced First Amendment lawyers who are available to answer religious liberty questions, conduct document reviews and provide advice, and even represent your church in court if necessary and appropriate – it’s virtually all-inclusive for religious freedom issues.  

Through this membership program, you can protect religious freedom for your church and for your congregants - without carrying the legal burden alone.

Alliance Defending Freedom

The largest religious liberty legal organization in the world, Alliance Defending Freedom, has been advocating for religious freedom, sanctity of life, and marriage and family since 1994. Alliance Defending Freedom recognized the increasing legal issues facing churches, and launched ADF Church Alliance to serve the Church and keep the legal doors open for the spread of the Gospel.

We review your church's documents – constitution, bylaws, policies, and more (even if they are incomplete) – and help you make changes to increase your religious freedom protections.

We are available to you as advisors, so you can reach out to ADF attorneys whenever you have religious liberty legal questions.

We keep you informed, so you know the trending religious liberty issues churches are facing across the country and so you are prepared.
