Meet Our Executive Director
Message from the Director:
America is in a "Valley of Decision" as Joel 3:14 declared in the Old Testament. We recognize the desire by satanic forces to silence the voice of Christ and His church. A recent video, "Speechless - Silencing the Christians" a joint effort of the Inspirational Network and the American Family Association vividly portrays this. But we that believe in Godly, Biblical convictions cannot sit idly by - our voice must be heard. BMA churches believe in the home, morality, the Bible, the church, and the greatness and power of God.
The main battlefront today is for our children. Whoever controls the children controls the future. There is an agenda today to guide children in American from God via television, books, movies, public school mandates, etc. Such organizations as the A.C.L.U. are leading the battle in our courts to remove God from our children in the public schools. The New Testament church has a mandate and unlimited opportunity to engage our children in the teaching of the Word through Sunday School, VBS, AWANA, Galileans, GMA's, church camps and youth groups.
The Moral Action Committee continues to promote Biblical morality and to strongly oppose the evils of our time, such as alcohol, child and drug abuse, sodomy, homosexuality, pornography, gambling, abortion, euthanasia, and extreme political agendas. Please pray that God will use this work for His Cause.
