You Can be a Christian
and a Libertarian

You Are Called to Freedom!

Do you consider yourself a libertarian and a Christian? If so, have you ever experienced a tension between your political philosophy and your faith?

You are not alone!

Many of us have. In fact, that tension is so real that much of society tells us something must be wrong. There is an active debate among Christians about the role of libertarians and among libertarians about the role of Christians. Our main goals at the Libertarian Christian Institute are to engage these active debates, to help Christians learn to love their libertarian brethren, and to articulate how libertarianism is a consistent expression of Christian political thought.
