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

Improve the community

Seek justice

Uphold Christian standards

We Want God to Bless our Nation
Therefore we want a civil government which:

  • Recognises God as the highest source of authority.
  • Applies Biblical principles as the foundation for all law.
  • Is committed to upholding the right to life of the innocent including preborn babies.
  • Shows love and concern for our neighbours by upholding human dignity and moral standards.
  • Protects people from the exploitation and abuse of pornography.
  • Effectively deters crime by prompt and appropriate punishment of criminals.
  • Respects parental responsibility for the education of their children and therefore parental authority over schools, teachers and textbooks.

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase and the Lord your God will bless you in the land ... This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life so that you and your children may live. Deuteronomy 30:19
