The Christian Life Commission (CLC) of the Missouri Baptist Convention serves as its public policy arm. We are dedicated to addressing social, moral, and ethical concerns, with particular attention to their impact on American families and their faith. Driven by the biblical mandate to be the salt and light of the world, the CLC seeks to assist Missouri Baptists by:
Being a voice in Jefferson City for the passage of sensible value-oriented legislation, as well as protecting the rights of all citizens as they are guaranteed in the Constitution.
Being an educator for churches and individuals on the current social issues of the day, including the sanctity and dignity of every human life, protecting religious liberty, restoring the biblical family, fighting substance abuse, and eliminating gambling and pornography and their devasting effects.
Being a resource to those who are challenged by all that Christian citizenship demands or who need biblical insight for dealing with current cultural struggles. We can help organize, promote, and recruit other believers in your battle against the contemporary culture.
With commissioners from across the state of Missouri, we have both local and state assistance available. We believe that people are created for community and that the church is most effective when it is most unified.
