Is it biblical to be patriotic? How does the church reconcile both allegiance to a man-made Constitution and the Bible?
- God has blessed America for a reason. We believe God wants us to be a beacon for the Gospel in the US and worldwide.
- God has also appointed leaders to root out evil in our society, to which we must give obedience (Romans 13). In our country, we have the privilege to elect our leaders. We are free to use our own criteria in making our selections. At SEC, we teach that our leaders must be people who are biblically literate and have a biblical world view.
- We love the country and the freedoms God has given us and encourage our people to share in that love.
