There are many Christians that want to DO something, however, do not know where to start. In each section below, a TAKE ACTION plan is suggested.
1 - UNITE - Unite as One according to Jesus' prayer in John 17:20-23. Jesus prayed that the disciples and all who believe in Him, through grace, would become partakers of the divine nature in unity with Him, and that through their (your) transformed lives, the world would recognize Him and be assured of His divine mission from the Father. We then give Him glory by uniting in this way. Start by making the decision as an individual, a family, and as a church body to unite as one in Him, together and with other Christian believers.
When we launched our first unity event, we extended invitation to churches with Christian motorcycle ministries and other Christian motorcycle riders to come together, pray and fellowship at a one-day event across the country. We suggest organizing a prayer gathering at your local town hall, if you are a small town. Meet and pray at your city hall for a larger town or if you live near your state capital, meet and pray there. The Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, AL saw a major decrease in their cities murder rate when organizing "pray walks" in 2007. They started meeting and praying for their city on the third Saturday of every month. They now have over 30 churches involved as of 2012 and the mayor and chief of police now escort their event!! Just six years ago, Birmingham was in the top 10 in the nation for murder! Uniting as one and praying together, does make a difference!

2 - PRAY - Pray according to 2 Chronicles 7:14 as an individual, as a family and as a church body. Seek the Lord as to how you are to humble yourself and turn from your wicked ways. The Lord says; "If my people who are called by Name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and heal their land.
Unfortunately, there are not many differences between the church and the world. Divorce rate among the church is as high as it is with nonbelievers. Addictions to pornography, alcohol, premarital sex, food, and entertainment are out of control. Adultery is prevalent withing the church and abortions among believers are as high as they are with nonbelievers.
We will all be held accountable if we continue to be passive and turn our heads while millions of babies continue to be murdered in our country by laws that we allowed to be passed! This is wickedness in God's eyes!
The church needs to look more like Christ and less like the world!

3 - STAND for what is RIGHT - We must be equipped and encourage other Christians to "Do the Right thing" and take a stand, get informed and vote according to Biblical Principles (Absolute Moral Truths.) This is not about a "political party!" This is about standing for what is Right in God's eyes! We must become men and women of character, integrity and virtue! Stand and support the organizations that are on the front lines fighting for Faith, Family, Liberty and Life!
FAITH - Our religious freedoms are in jeopardy! To understand our Christian heritage and the founding of this great nation we call the United States, we highly recommend the "Monumental" movie by Kirk Cameron. The documentary presents the facts of how our Forefathers founded this great nation and proves that civil government and Christianity go hand in hand. Wall Builders is another great organization to research the facts about this great nation.
An organization standing on the front lines defending our religious freedoms is "Alliance Defending Freedom" (ADF) formerly called the "Alliance Defense Fund." They help defend Christians that have been sued based on their Christian faith. We must stand and support ADF to continue to defend our religious freedoms.

FAMILY - The institute of marriage is being threatened. Protect Marriage between one man and one woman! Why? Because Jesus said in Mark 10:6-9 "But at the beginning of creation God made them male and female. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore, what God has joined together, let man not separate."
The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) - enacted Sept. 21, 1996, is a United States federal law that defines marriage as the legal union of one man and one woman for federal and inter-state recognition purposes in the United States. Section 3. Definition of marriage-in determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the word "marriage" means only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife, and the word "spouse" refers only to a person of the opposite sex who is a husband or a wife.
Go to Family Research Council - www.frc.org. They send alerts informing Christians to take action regarding Faith, Family and Freedom issues.

LIBERTY - Our Constitutional Rights are being threatened. We must support organizations on the front lines that defend our Religious Freedoms and Constitutional Rights! We must be informed as Christians and hod our Representatives accountable. As Americans and taxpaying citizens, we have a right and duty to hold our local, state and federal government responsible as to what laws they pass and how they spend our money!
Studies show that only half of Christians are registered to vote and only half of registered Christians actually do vote. What could we accomplish if ALL Christians were informed, registered and voted according to Biblical Principles (Absolute Moral Truths?)
Register to Vote, get informed and encourage others to also.

LIFE - Life is sacred and we are ALL made is God's image. In Isaiah 44:24 it says, "This is what the Lord says-your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: In Job 31;15 it says; "Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One form us both within our mothers?" And in Psalm 139:13-16 it says; "For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body."
We must stand for the unborn child because it is the Right thing to do! Murder is NOT a Right!
Support the Life at Conception Act H.R. 374. If passed, the Supreme Court would then protect life under the 14th amendment! Go to National Pro Life Alliance - www.prolifealliance.com and sign up for their alerts and sign the petitions they send to our representatives to hold them accountable.
The Republican Platform adopted the Pro life stand and committed to protecting life!
