Dear Friend of RenewAmerica,

This New Year, as America is about to embark on fundamental changes that threaten to alter — permanently — the very character of our free country, we at RenewAmerica would like to invite you to give serious thought to signing the Pledge for America's Revival.

The Pledge — available at AmericasRevival.com, the citizen action center of RenewAmerica — is posted below.

Thanks for giving the Pledge your thoughtful consideration.

May God bless you,

Stephen Stone
President and Editor, RenewAmerica



Sign the
Pledge for America's Revival
Introduction

When the Founders laid the groundwork for our republic, they stated in the final words of the Declaration of Independence:

    And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor. (emphasis added)

In the spirit of the above words from the Declaration, we invite all to join us in a "Pledge for America's Revival." Those who sign the Pledge commit to stand with likeminded patriots in advancing America's God-centered revival, upon the principles of our nation's founding.

Prayerfully consider the words of the Pledge. If our country is to survive in liberty, it needs citizens who understand their vocation as participants in the political process — not merely spectators. We are counting on you to make a difference, of your own initiative, in preserving our republic.

If you are prepared to commit in good faith and with a heart for God's will — and find others equally committed — America's Revival will grow into a mighty grassroots reality, capable of helping to restore America's allegiance to God, and the connection between our liberties and our respect for His authority as our Creator.

Upon this depends the future of our republic!

The pledge

In measuring the needs of our country against the backdrop of current destructive trends, and seeing an urgent duty to "make a difference" by my own individual voice and activism in the cause of preserving our nation, I hereby announce my support for the purposes of America's Revival, purposes that center in the values and traditions that define America itself — beginning with the need to acknowledge the authority of God in all areas of American life, including the political arena.

I understand that the purposes of America's Revival include:

  • Teaching and promoting the self-evident truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence.

  • Upholding the requirements, guarantees, and protections of the Constitution of the United States.

  • Preserving and defending the vital moral foundations of our republic — including the sanctity of life; the God-ordained family; the free exercise of religion in both public and private life; and the divinely-appointed equal rights of every individual.

  • Encouraging God-fearing Americans to recommit to living in harmony with the will of God — yielding their hearts completely to Him and trusting in Him in all things. (See Jer. 31:33-34 and Prov. 3:5-6.)

  • Doing whatever else might be properly included in the obligations and responsibilities of American citizenship, in accordance with true principles and the requirements of self-governance.

I therefore pledge to stand with likeminded Americans in advancing this cause — and pledge to do my best to find and encourage others who are also willing to make and keep the same pledge. In addition, I pledge to donate what I can to build this principled, patriotic effort, and other worthy causes, according to my individual ability and circumstances.

Finally, I pledge to give my best effort in all other needful, exemplary ways as God may guide me — for the cause of America's Revival and for God, who is my witness.

Why sign

Consider these facts:

  • Signing the Pledge gives you a chance to affirm the most basic principles our founders proclaimed in the Declaration!

  • Signing gives you a chance to go beyond affirmation alone and — like the founders — make a commitment to band together with likeminded Americans to uphold our nation's founding ideals.

  • Signing gives you a chance to show your appreciation for the sacrifices made by the signers of the Declaration.

  • Signing does not commit you to do anything you are not prepared to do — or to support any particular public figure, candidacy, political party, or organization. It commits you only to support the cause of taking back our country, in whatever ways God directs you.

Please join us

Our country desperately needs the concerted faith, prayers, and activism of dedicated Americans who understand their God-given duty as citizens of this still-great land. We need a Revival of the American Spirit!
