The Baptist Joint Committee fights every day to defend and extend religious liberty for all people. While we work in the halls of Congress, in federal agencies and in the Courts, we depend on you to do your part, too.

Your involvement matters.

At a time when our sensibly centrist voice is often drowned out by those outside the mainstream, it's up to you to be the reasonable religious presence in your community. Whatever your sphere of influence, you can help us communicate our belief that genuine religious liberty requires the separation of church and state. By advocating for religious liberty in your community, you show people around you that you care and you help multiply the impact of our efforts.

This Web site contains many resources that could be of use as you prepare to meet with your members of Congress, a local representative or write a letter to the editor of a local newspaper. You also have the BJC staff at your disposal. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you think we can help.

Here are some other ways to get involved now!

Sponsor a religious liberty Sunday
You can bring awareness of the importance of religious liberty to your church family by helping to sponsor a "Religious Liberty Day." Often occurring around the 4th of July holiday, this is an event that you can work into any worship service or gathering that fits your church's calendar.  We provide you with teaching materials to lead an adult or youth Bible study, sermon helps, liturgy and music for a religious liberty service. Visit for downloadable resources.

Bring the BJC to your town
BJC Executive Director J. Brent Walker and General Counsel Holly Hollman enjoy any time when they can talk to your community about the importance of our work defending and extending religious liberty for all.  We encourage our supporters across the country to join together and sponsor a community event in which Brent or Holly will engage the audience in a dialogue about understanding the importance of our "first" freedom.
