Who we are and what we do

The Christian Life Commission aids churches, communities and government leaders give voice to critical issues in society from a Christian and biblical perspective. All actions are based off of Biblical Insight and Principled Living.

Dr. Gus Reyes is the Director of the Christian Life Commission based in Austin, Texas, and sponsored by Texas Baptists.

Ethics & Justice

We seek to provide online resources on an array of ethical topics that point toward a Christ-centered approach to living. Issues we focus on include: Hunger & Poverty, Citizenship and Ethical Choices. We also feature an Ethical Living Blog. To learn more, please contact Ferrell Foster at (512) 473-2288.

Public Policy

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. Because of this, our Public Policy branch has provided information on public policy issues such as Criminal Justice, Alcohol & Addiction, Education and Gambling, so that the world we live in can reflect Biblical truth. To learn more, please contact Kathryn Freeman at (512) 473-2288.
