WHAT IS A DEFENDER CHURCH?
DEFEND & ADVANCE LIFE
DEFENDER CHURCHES believe that government has an obligation to protect life from conception to natural death. Defender churches will advocate in the public square on issues of life ranging from abortion to adoption to human euthanasia.
DEFEND & ADVANCE MARRIAGE
DEFENDER CHURCHES believe marriage is between one man and one woman, and that it is the optimum family arrangement for the rearing of children. We advocate for the preservation and promotion of natural marriage at the state and federal levels in order to address our social ills rather than an ever larger, more controlling government.
DEFEND & ADVANCE RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
DEFENDER CHURCHES believe that the right to worship freely, publicly, and at work is fundamental and non-negotiable. We fight against unconstitutional restrictions on churches and ministries, to preserve the rights of churches and religious schools to hire as they see fit, and for Washingtonians to live out their faith freely.
DEFEND & ADVANCE PARENTAL RIGHTS
DEFENDER CHURCHES believe parents have the right to choose how to raise their children. From educational choice to vaccine exemptions, we oppose government efforts to force parents into decisions with which they do not agree.
