The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention (ERLC) is dedicated to assisting your church with resources as you seek to apply God’s Word to cultural issues and to speaking on behalf of Southern Baptists in the public square for the protection of religious liberty and human flourishing. We aim to engage our culture with the gospel so that more people can experience the transformative power of Jesus Christ.
Since its inception, the ERLC has been defined around a holistic vision of the kingdom of God, leading the culture to change within the church itself and then as the church addresses the world.
The ERLC has offices in Washington, D.C. and Nashville, TN.
