“For by Him (Christ) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth.” (Col. 1:16)
The same love for God and neighbor that compels us to preach salvation through Jesus Christ, protect the unborn, preserve the family and the sanctity of marriage, and take the whole Gospel to a hurting world, also compels us to recognize that human-induced climate change is a serious Christian issue requiring action now.
To make clear our views and commitment, as evangelical leaders we have issued the statement Climate Change: An Evangelical Call to Action. We invite you to read and reflect upon it and share your views with us.
We have also compiled a set of Principles for Federal Policy on Climate Change, which will be followed in early June by a white paper that explores these principles in greater detail.
We also encourage you to take action today to address climate change. We invite you to download our new Prayer Guide on Global Warming, and to use it in your personal and congregational prayer life. You can also take steps now to reduce your global warming pollution to zero by accessing our Cooling Creation resource page.
We believe the problem is serious, but that cost-effective solutions are available that will also create jobs, clean up our environment, make us more efficient, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil, thereby enhancing our national security. Working together, and with God’s help, we can make a difference.
Climate Change an Evangelical Call To Action
The Evangelical Climate Initiative (ECI) is a group of over 300 senior evangelical leaders in the United States who are convinced it is time for our country to help solve the problem of global warming. We seek to do so in a way that creates jobs, cleans up our environment, and enhances national security by reducing our dependence on foreign oil, thereby creating a safe and a healthy future for our children. Our deep commitment to Jesus Christ and his commands to love our neighbors, care for “the least of these,” and be proper stewards of His creation compels us to act. Our views are articulated on the ECI statement page.
Thanks to your partners
