Communicate Your Beliefs with Confidence
What you believe defines your ministry. Your ability to communicate your beliefs freely allows you to fulfill your mission.
The U.S. Constitution affords ministries certain protection for decisions that ministry leaders make based on their religious beliefs (belief-based decisions). Even so, the likelihood that a court will uphold a claim against the ministry depends largely on the type of claim and how well the ministry has spelled out its policies and procedures.
Brotherhood Mutual’s Religious Freedom Protection Coverage offers peace of mind about what you say and do. Not only does it protect against claims of emotional injury related to your ministry’s religious communications and activities, it also helps legally defend decisions based on your ministry’s beliefs.
Does your ministry have a purpose statement in its bylaws?
From a legal standpoint, citing supporting Scripture can strengthen your ministry’s First Amendment (freedom of religion) position in the event of litigation. Help safeguard your ministry by including a purpose statement in your ministry bylaws. Download a free sample purpose statement that you can adapt for your ministry.
