ADF Church Alliance

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building legal ministry that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.


ADF Church Alliance was established to support the ever growing needs of churches across the United States. Launched in 2017, it has steadily developed into a robust service to protect, counsel and engage churches for their religious liberty.
Across the United States, Christians are being punished for living by their convictions. As current or former clients of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the individuals in this video have experienced this firsthand. Join us as we defend these clients and protect their freedom to live consistent with their faith.



“I am grateful for the ADF Church Alliance. They have been working alongside us to protect our church and its ministries by updating our church documents. They have been quick to respond and easy to work with. ADF Church Alliance respectfully caught our vision and made suggestions that accentuated and protected our core values.”

“With the seemingly sudden and bold attack on religious liberty in recent years, our church has sought out a trusted partner to position and equip us legally for ministry in the coming years. We chose ADF and partnered with them through their Church Alliance program. I would strongly encourage other churches to partner with them as well.”

“Being a part of this movement for religious freedom is exciting. This is a great benefit for our church now and in the future, and we also consider this a mission that helps our brothers and sisters at churches all over the country who need the immediate legal support. We are encouraged that our membership and partnership with ADF is making a difference. ”

“...we have been working with ADF Church Alliance in auditing and discussing our church governing documents. The process has been encouraging and thorough and the recommendations have been very helpful in providing practical, Christ-centered legal advice. I highly recommend using Church Alliance, as they focus on helping protect religious liberty across our Nation and in churches, both large and small.”

“I found myself having a legal conversation within one week of my initial inquiry. I feel I have a new friend who is an experienced lawyer. And his entire legal team stands ready and waiting to help our church and me whenever the need arises. I would encourage every church to become a member of Church Alliance and gain a friend in the legal arena."
