As Christians, we hold a unique responsibility in society. We are commanded to obey the governing authorities and seek the good of our nation while yielding our ultimate allegiance to Christ. Theologian and author Dr. Vince Bacote and Chris Brooks will explore how we make that practical. Learn to carry out our civic duty as Christians in a fallen world!
