The Foundation of Our Nation
For many Americans, the ability to gather, worship and pray are critical among the blessings offered by our free society. We recognize that this country was founded upon a bedrock of faith, and we understand the critical role that Divine Providence has played in our nation’s history – from the time our forebears first set foot on these shores to the present day. All of the achievements that define the American dream, from gleaming cities and busy byways to our equitable legal system and stable government, are a reflection of the faith-based ideals and spiritual convictions of the people. In the words of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, “Without God, there could be no American form of government nor any American way of life.”
From its earliest colonial days right on through to the 21st century, America has always been a nation steeped in faith – spiritual roots that must be embraced, celebrated and cherished. Her citizens, leaders and institutions have consistently acknowledged that freedom and democracy are blessings passed down directly from the hand of Providence. This reliance on Almighty God has sustained us in periods of turmoil and given us comfort during times of uncertainty. Collectively, we know that we have not been left to our own devices. We find peace and encouragement in the assurance that our destiny as a nation lies in the hands of the Creator of the universe, and that we can call upon His name, through His son Jesus Christ.
