Mission Statement


We are a statewide century old ministry for Christians, supported financially by individual Christians and churches located throughout Maine. Our threefold mission, written in 1897, is: To elect honest and competent officials. To encourage all the people of Maine in good citizenship. To create good laws and provide for their impartial enforcement.

Description


The League is committed to the following six ethical components The power to give The power to give reflects the nature of the Creator, where true power finds its definition in the giving of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to all persons, all of whom are made in God’s image. This power to give is the nature of true government. The power to live in the light The power to live in the light means the freedom to live openly and honestly in the sight of God and one another. No darkness, no deceit, no hiddenness, no motivations by fear, no ulterior agendas. The power to love hard questions The power to love hard questions reflects the humility and confidence to embrace any and all questions honestly. It equals the invitation to all citizens to be received into the political process with graciousness and respect, regardless of their views so long as civil order is honored. This freedom of dissent in the marketplace of ideas creates the dynamic tension in which a constitutional and democratic republic thrives. The power of informed choice The power of informed choice is the genuine freedom to make good choices, based on the true definition of terms necessary to distinguish good from evil. This reflects the power to give where God’s love does not force itself upon us, but comes by invitation. Religious liberty is thus the first freedom and we affirm the ethics of persuasion in civil discourse and we renounce all coercive and intolerant means. It is the power of informed choice which makes “the consent of the governed” possible. The power to love enemies The power to love enemies means our recognition that those who oppose our persons or positions, in any capacity, nonetheless deserve respect as image-bearers of God. It also means that we renounce any dehumanizing language or actions in our political partisanships. The power to forgive The power to forgive is the power to give in the face of brokenness and betrayal. It is the grace to acknowledge our common humanity, and to be merciful to each other, in the hope that all people of good will can work more productively together to ensure a healthy civil order.
