At the Christian Civic League of Maine, our vision is a state and nation where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive and life is cherished.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Christian Civic League of Maine. The League, founded in 1897, is a nonpartisan, nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to the preservation of the family and Christian values.
The Mission of the Christian Civic League is to bring a Biblical perspective to public policy issues that impact the family and equip citizens to be voices of persuasion on behalf of traditional family values in their localities.
With our office located just minutes from the Statehouse in Augusta, we keep a close watch on the day-to-day activities of state government and are involved at numerous levels of the policy–making process.
We work closely with other organizations and often provide speakers and conduct educational seminars for a variety of groups on various public policy issues.
- We believe God’s timeless design for the family is the strongest foundation for a free society. We equip and motivate Mainers and Christ’s Church as a whole to cast their ballots and raise their voices in support of pro-family candidates and policies.
- We believe human life is sacred. We’re all created in the image of God, so we respect and protect life, including preborn babies, the elderly and every other condition of the human experience through natural death.
- We believe the Founding Fathers got it right when they guaranteed the “free exercise of religion.” We protect the freedom of individuals, churches and businesses to speak and act according to their faith.
