Safeguarding Religious Freedom
Sample Policies for WELS Congregations, Schools, and Organizations
In a changing moral climate, God’s people can continue to make a profound impact as faithful witnesses to his love and truth. Given the freedom to live out and exercise our faith, WELS congregations, schools, and affiliated organizations can engage what is sometimes a hostile social and political culture in ways that offer clear light and enduring hope amid the growing spiritual darkness. We do that by proclaiming law and gospel, not primarily to change society or human behavior, but to change hearts through the powerful working of the Holy Spirit.
