We envision a day when all bible believing Christians, regardless of ethnicity, stand for what we say we believe, and to actively engage in the political process that represents us.
To advance the Kingdom of God through sociopolitical education and engagement rooted in a Biblical Worldview.
Our work is based on those biblical principles and values that aim to fulfill Christ’s mission faithfully, as articulated in Luke 4:18 and Acts 26:18. We believe that the gospel message has both political and public policy implications, which include long-term ministry goals such as “proclaiming freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, and releasing of the oppressed.”
We aim to create a “paradigm shift” in the way the Church, in general, and the African American Church, in particular, view matters of faith, race, and public policy. FJI pledges to vigorously challenge “liberal” ideology with those conservative principles, such as the R.I.S.E Principles, essential to promoting and sustaining a stable and prosperous family and society.
