Church and FlagThe Christian Action League is…

The Christian Action League of North Carolina is a Christian public policy organization representing conservative evangelicals from seventeen denominations in the Tar Heel state.

It has its roots in the days of prohibition and grew out of the Anti-Saloon movement. In 1937, during the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina in Wilmington, a committee was formed to meet with the leadership of other denominations for the express purpose of forming an interdenominational, statewide organization that could effectively address the state’s alcohol policy. Thus was formed The Allied Church League.

In 1958, however, the charter of the organization was amended to expand the scope of its ministry. No longer would the League simply address alcohol policy, but would also address all matters of public-policy it deemed pertinent to protecting and sustaining a righteous culture. This is when the name was changed from the Allied Church League to the Christian Action League of North Carolina.

Today the Christian Action League has representatives serving on its Advisory Board from nearly all 100 counties in the Tar Heel state. It has the largest network of members, volunteers, and churches of any Christian public-policy group in North Carolina.

The Christian Action League helps communities with advice and assistance regarding local option alcohol referendums to sexually oriented businesses. It has a full-time lobbying presence in the North Carolina General Assembly and works with lawmakers concerning a host of issues: America’s Christian heritage, religious liberty, biomedical ethics, marriage and family, substance abuse, gambling, pornography, race relations, the sanctity of human life, etc.

One of the Christian Action League’s most important ministries is training, developing and motivating followers of Christ to be involved in the political process. Jesus commanded believers to be “salt” and “light” (St. Matthew 5:13,14). As “salt” Christians have a persevering effect on culture – they keep the world from becoming completely rotten. As “light” they expose the evils of their day, as well as chase away the darkness of life with the Gospel of Christ and the law of God.

The Christian Action League earnestly believes and is committed to its slogan: The only lasting cure for evil and injustice is Christian Action.
