LIBERTY CHURCH PROJECT UPDATE
By Chuck Baldwin
June 5, 2014
In this column on May 15, I first told readers about the launching of the Liberty Church Project (LCP). This is a national effort to help folks start non-501c3, unincorporated churches and Christian fellowships. The requests for this kind of help have been multitudinous, and from all over the country. To help with this project, I have enlisted the assistance of several people, including Christian attorneys, a video team, and folks from the Biblical Law Center--not to mention clerical people. This is a major undertaking.
I realized when I announced the LCP that it would require major financial support. I knew the need was there; I knew the desire for such an outreach was felt by many folks around the country, and I knew that I was asking for an unusual amount of funding. I also know that if God wants me to undertake this project, He will touch the hearts of people to support it. Therefore, I am using this column to remind folks of the need to support the Liberty Church Project.
To meet the budgetary needs of the project, I still need $60,000. Specifically, I am looking for 12 people who are willing and able to donate $5,000 to the Liberty Church Project. Obviously, most people could not afford to give such an amount, and I am most grateful to those are willing to give any amount. But should God touch the hearts of 12 people to give at least $5,000 to the project, we would be off and running quickly.
Right now the project is on hold, pending sufficient funding. When we know that the funding is there, we will activate the application form on the LCP website so people can begin the process of making requests for us to come and help start these new, non-501c3 churches and fellowships.
Here is the website for the Liberty Church Project.
Mind you, the Liberty Church Project is completely independent and separate from Liberty Fellowship and Chuck Baldwin Live. Please know, too, that I will not use this column to continually ask for support for the Liberty Church Project. I am convinced if God wants me to do this, the need will be met without me becoming a beggar. So, I am making this one last appeal to my readers on behalf of the project.
If you missed my introduction to the Liberty Church Project, here it is.
In those introductory remarks, I said:
"Over the past couple of years, hundreds of people from across the country have pleaded with me to help them start new independent, unorganized, unincorporated, non-501c3 churches and Christian fellowships. It has become painfully obvious to many patriotic believers that the vast majority of establishment 501c3 churches and pastors have made a deliberate decision to NOT engage the liberty fight. For the most part, these pastors and churches have been completely muzzled by State incorporation and the 501c3 government tax-status. And, sadly, these pastors and churches have absolutely no desire to change. They are cemented in lethargy and indifference. Meanwhile, our nation is spiraling downward toward certain destruction--and the biggest reason for this calamitous situation is the absence of patriot-pulpits.
"But it is more than a tax-status: it is a mindset, a philosophy, and a vision. Hundreds of thousands of Christians across America are panting for a pastor and church that will boldly teach and preach the Biblical Natural Law principles of liberty. They want a pastor and church that do not seem to be more loyal to a political party than they are to the principles of truth. They want a pastor who will name names from the pulpit. They desire a place where they can fellowship with freedom-minded believers. They are tired of being outcasts and renegades among these establishment government institutions, called churches. They are weary of being called "kooks," because they refuse to go along with the bread and circus provided by the mainstream media and political establishments. They are disgusted with "program-driven" churches. In their gut, they know that the Bible teaches the principles of self-defense, the right to be armed, private property, the separation of powers, jurisdictional authority, limited government, the rights of man, etc., and they want a pastor and church that understands these Biblical truths and will plainly teach them. Frankly, they want a patriot-pastor and a liberty church.
"Enter The Liberty Church Project."
Now, I certainly do not feel like I am any sort of a Moses, and I certainly do not profess to think that I have all of the answers. What I do know, is that if there is not a major revival of patriot-pastors and liberty churches throughout this country, America is doomed. Politics, alone, cannot fix the problem. The root of our problem is spiritual; only courageous pastors and churches that are unfettered with the chains of government intimidation can lead the way to such a revival. And I also believe that, while I may not live to see its fruition, my work with Liberty Fellowship, Chuck Baldwin Live, and now the Liberty Church Project are at the tip of the spear in this burgeoning revival that I am convinced will come.
Either what I am saying resonates with readers or it doesn't. If it does, I am asking for your help. If you agree with me that establishing non-501c3 churches is critically important to the future of freedom in America and you want to help me answer the clarion call of those who are asking me to come and help them, then I need your help. I cannot help them if you do not help me.
Again, I am looking for 12 people who will donate $5,000 or more to the Liberty Church Project. And please remember that gifts to the LCP are NOT 501c3 tax deductible. That's the whole idea: getting the Church to cut its illegitimate umbilical cord to Caesar.
