Parental Rights

We believe that both the responsibility and the authority for raising children rest primarily with their biological or adoptive parents, and not the government.

We believe that children belong to their parents, who hold the primacy of authority in a God-honoring family. The education of children should be directed by parents who are charged to foster virtues, wisdom, and knowledge. Medical procedures must not be performed on minors without parental consent, except in cases of medical emergency. The right of parents to impose necessary discipline upon their children should not be infringed. We stand against any attempt to undermine the authority of Godly parents.


  • “You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens are above the earth. “You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.’ (Deuteronomy 11:18-21, ESV)
