About the Scottish Christian Party
Why A Christian Party?
The time has come for Christians of all denominations to stand up for their beliefs and to resist the tide of secularism destroying our country. The Scottish Christian Party exists to fulfil this vital role.
Many Christians feel that they can no longer vote conscientiously for the major political parties with the result that they feel marginalised and disenfranchised. Yet it is a fundamental civil right in a democratic society to be able to vote for who and what you want. With the Scottish Christian Party on the ballot paper you are able to vote for a Christian politician who will be able to speak up for issues and implement policies which are consistent with Christian values.
More than that - you will be able to help to develop the policies which this nation needs. The only legitimate way to change the laws of the country is by politics - you need politicians. Just as the major parties have adopted Green Party issues, so we need a Christian Party to encourage them to adopt Christian issues. No longer does the silent Christian majority have to suffer in silence - yes, 72% of the population in the last census declared themselves to be Christian, would you believe it?
Under the leadership of Jeff Green, this non-denominational, faith-based Christian political party provides a united Christian witness across the nation to ensure that the message of the Bible is heard, heard where it matters, and applied to the needs of the country.
Dr Donald Boyd has taken on the leadership of the Party in Scotland and the Rev. David Griffiths leadership of the Party in Wales . They are actively recruiting Christian activists who can see the Scriptural vision.
The voice of the once mighty church may have been reduced to a mere whisper, but the Scottish Christian Party will not be - it will speak out and not be silent. Whatever your denomination or churchmanship, the time has come to unite and stand together for the Christian faith and all it represents. The more who join the Scottish Christian Party the stronger our Christian voice will become. If you agree that this is so, it may be that God is calling on you to join together with other like-minded Christians throughout the country who are equally concerned about the state of the church and nation.
If you think that we have not got something right, then this is your opportunity to give Christian input and put it right.
The Scottish Christian Party hopes to use the talents of the Lord’s people, in their different callings, to bring the grace of the Gospel to bear upon the religious, spiritual, moral and social problems of our society.
Statement of Faith
- We believe in one creator God, eternally existent in three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as stated in the historic creeds of the Christian church.
- We acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord over all creation.
- We believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired, infallible, written Word of God to whose precepts, given for the good of nations and individuals, all man’s law must submit.
- We believe all government to be under the authority of God and that the purpose of government is the maintenance of freedom and justice solely in accordance with biblical principles.
- Jesus Christ will come again to the earth, personally, visibly and bodily to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
Statement of Purpose
The primary purpose of the Christian Party is to proclaim the Lordship of Christ. The party also exists to empower those who confess “Jesus Christ as Lord!” to serve him in the political sphere.
