A BRIEF HISTORY OF RECLAIMING AMERICA FOR CHRIST
After attending the last Reclaiming America for Christ Conference, hosted by the late Dr. D. James Kennedy at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in 2006, our hearts were burdened over the spiritual bankruptcy of our nation. What could an average citizen do to make a difference?
The answer was quite clear. The same strategy that Nehemiah used in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem must be employed in rebuilding the walls of America. Each person, each family, each church must take responsibility for making a difference in their own neighborhood, community and state.
Knowing that it was the spiritual revival that history calls the “Great Awakening” and thepreaching of the patriot pastors in Colonial America that stirred the hearts of the people towards liberty from tyranny and the birth of our nation in 1776, we believe that the same strategy must be employed for the re-birth of our Christian liberty in America.
We began working to “Reclaim Oklahoma for Christ” and now have an effective working relationship with over 100 pastors from across our state. Our goal is to connect with, encourage, and if needed, assist pastors all over the nation in reclaiming their own states for Christ and the Christian liberty upon which our founding fathers built this great country.
Although we are not affiliated or connected with Coral Ridge Ministries or its former initiative, the Center for Reclaiming America, we have been granted permission by those entities to use the name “Reclaiming America for Christ” as we expand this vision across America. We hope to honor the name and legacy of Dr. Kennedy as we strive for another Great Awakening in this nation.
