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.

What AG Leaders Are Saying

My connection with ADF was an eye-opener that persuaded me to become partners with them. They have been an asset to many of our churches and stand with us on our conservative biblical values. They truly are what they say they are and do what they say they do. They have made a great impression not only on me but on many churches, pastors, and leaders within the Assemblies of God. I endorse ADF and strongly encourage every church and pastor to get on board with ADF.

In the current political and social climate, the Church and religious liberty is under constant attack. For over twenty years, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has been a friend and resource of the New York Ministry Network. ADF is the foremost advocate for the Church of Jesus Christ in the United States. Our Network has joined in partnership with them. I encourage our churches to join to prepare and protect themselves with today’s challenges. I recommend them highly!
