COMPACT of MUTUAL CONSENT
In the Name of the Most Holy and Undivided Trinity. Amen.
Believing that Almighty God is the source of all power and authority in civil government, that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Ruler of nations, and that the revealed will of God is the supreme authority in civil affairs; perceiving that the forces of unbelief and pluralism have labored diligently to divorce America from her Christian heritage and Biblical law; and viewing with deep alarm the resulting corruption of our politics, the moral chaos of our society, the loss of our liberties, the apathy of our citizens, and the impending judgment of God upon this nation for its deliberate and grievous rejection of the lordship of Christ and the authority of His Word, we the members of the Christian Liberty Party hereby solemnly and mutually in the presence of God and of one another covenant, combine and associate ourselves together under the terms of the following articles, that we may labor together through all wise and lawful means for the accomplishment of the ends herein set forth.*
The PURPOSE of the Christian Liberty Party shall be:
to establish in every state an orderly association of families as a Christian political party;
to promote the Biblical principles of self and civil government, and the establishment of godly order in society;
to restore to America’s citizens the knowledge and responsibility of her Christian heritage;
to equip individuals and families in the vocation of citizenship; and,
to elect qualified leaders and candidates who understand and operate according to the standard of God’s Word.
(This is the purpose of the CLP as stated in the Constitution, Article II.)
