The Black Robe Regiment that is here represented is a vital part of our American heritage and a part of our national psyche. America was fundamentally constructed well before the War for Independence in the 1600's by people who came to these shores seeking freedom and liberty from a feudal lord/ monarch who had far overstepped his God-given authority. In the conception and birth of America, church and governance was not separate, it was vitally connected and each informed the other. Indeed, all governance of and by the people was informed by way of Scripture and the Church and its community was central to all American life at that time.
The pulpit ministers during the period of the American Revolution were central to the cause. Had it not been for these men, the Revolution would not have succeeded as it did. Early on, General George Washington had failed multiple times. The ministers rallied their congregations, inspired them with the truth of the Ancient Principles (see "The Making of America--The Substance and Meaning of the Constitution," the "Eight Ancient Principles of the Declaration of Independence" written by Thomas Jefferson), that led them (had led them by way of the Ancient Israelites and Anglo-Saxon forebears--see "The Making of America" and the "obvious aspects of People's Rule that governed them"), and moved them to action to defend against tyranny and murder. As there were churches in every community along the eastern seaboard and they were central to American life, this body of Christ was able to mobilize swiftly and with emboldened intention to win and gain what we understand today as true Liberty and Freedom.
Later, Law would be established that spoke to these Ancient Principles, securing government of, by, and for the People. This body of Laws is known as the United States Constitution and every territory that gained statehood molded its Constitution by this one. Religion and governance were inseparably interwoven; the one informed the other.
It is our mission:
***To educate and support all ministers in their search for the truth of the American church and her relevance then and now;
***To educate the Christian Community in the historical truth of American Fundamentals and their relevance as the Body of Christ and the influence and impact they have inherent in their mission here in this country and to all nations;
***To educate all people and restore to its rightful place the Church in America (indeed, the entire earth);
***To provide educational materials for use in the Church and for the American Public to restore our American History and the History of the American Church, so as to restore what has been lost by way of deception and historical revision;
***To provide a safe haven and network of like-minded Christian individuals to pursue these endeavors.
***To restore the American Church in her capacity as the Body of Christ, ambassadors of Christ, moral teacher of America and the World, and overseer of of all principalities and governing officials (Rom 13), as was rightfully established long ago (under the leadership of Moses, the first appointed head of the Children of Israel and of God--see Exo 18:13-27).
***To engage the Body of Christ and Her shepherds (the ministers) to active participation in all levels of society, for this is Her mission as was commanded by Lord Jesus our Savior, who is the true and only King of this World. (John 1:1-18; Mt 25:31-34; Without the Church's participation in all levels of society morality is lost, corruption is a certainty. It is the Church's role to herald salvation, provide interpretation of Scripture, and to be the plumb-line of morality and discernment on all levels of our society.
***To stand in support for our Jewish brethren and defend the State of Israel against the growing tide of anti-Semitism. It is our biblical responsibility to stand in solidarity with God's chosen people, for it is through Israel that God's prophecy will be reveled and our salvation assured.
