Christian citizenship is a response to the call of God and the example of the ministry of Jesus Christ in the world. As caring Christians, we are called to reach out to the needs of the world with talents, spiritual gifts and compassion. Seeking a ministry of Christian citizenship, the Christian Life Commission (CLC) works to provide information and leadership on a variety of issues. The Christian Life Commission speaks to and with but not for Texas Baptists on these issues.
