Why the ERLC Advocates for Religious Liberty

Religious liberty describes the freedom of individuals to live in the public square according to their deeply held religious beliefs. It is a foundational tenant of Baptist belief and is essential for our nation’s flourishing. As Southern Baptists, we believe that matters of gospel proclamation and personal salvation are issues of the heart—not of the state. The ERLC is committed to serving our churches by working to protect this first freedom in order that more people may come to know the saving power of Jesus Christ.
