“Blessed is the Nation Whose God is the LORD.” PSALM 33:12

America was founded on godly principles rooted in God’s eternal Word. Freedom is God’s idea, and implanted within every human heart by the Creator who made them is the yearning to be free. Leviticus 25:10, inscribed on our Liberty Bell says, “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.”

The golden, majestic appearance of our Declaration of Indepedence – the parchment paper, the resolute signatures of those who represented the voice of a new nation, and the rich content of this anointed document, bears testimony to the powerful faith which underscored the conviction on which our Indepedence is based: “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God that all men are created equal, and they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…. appealing to Supreme Judge of the world…”

Further evidence of the powerful faith of our earliest leaders can be seen in the content of their state constitutions, penned by some of the same men who wrote the Declaration of Indepedence. The Delaware document, for example, written by Thomas McKean. A signer of the Declaration of Indepedence and the Articles of Confederation, and George Read, also signer of Declaration of Indepedence and the Constitution of the United States, says, “Every person who shall be chosen a member of either house, or appointed to any office or places of trust, before taking his seat, or entering upon the execution of his office, shall take the following oath: “I do profess faith in God the Father, and in Jesus Christ His only Son, and the Holy Spirit, one God, blessed for ever more; and I do acknowledge the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine Inspiration.”
