Welcome to Biblical Citizenship
Definition: Biblical citizenship is honoring God by living like Jesus as a citizen of heaven in our society, under the authority of human government (Philippians 3:20; 1 Peter 1:13).
Foundation: Biblical Citizenship is based on God’s plan for the relationship between God, government and individuals. The Bible teaches that all governing authority comes from God and that He determines all the times and boundaries for nations. Therefore, government has the God-given responsibility to promote peace, encourage good and restrain evil (Romans 13:1-4; 1 Peter 2:14; Acts 17:24-31), and, individuals have the God-given responsibility to honor governing authorities by submitting to them except when their directives are opposed to God’s principles (Romans 13:1, 5-7; 1 Peter 2:13, 15-17; Acts 5:29).
Biblical Citizenship Team Purpose: To equip individual followers of Jesus to live according to God’s plan before God and government. Our focus is on providing valuable citizenship information to the members and regular attendees of Emmanuel Faith Church.
