Champion the Vote is an initiative of United in Purpose (UiP), a non-partisan, non-profit organization whose mission is to actively advance the traditional values of America's founding fathers.
UiP provides resources and infrastructure for like-minded Christian organizations and ministries to educate and mobilize their constituencies for the common cause of bringing the Biblical worldview to the forefront of American life and politics.
The mission of Champion the Vote is to get unregistered Christians registered to vote, educated in the Biblical worldview, and voting accordingly on Election Day.
Of the 60 million Christians in the U.S., only 30 million of them vote in any given election or are even registered to vote. Our research has shown that it only takes 5 million votes to decide an election. We believe that if Christian voters will make their voices heard on Election Day, we can bring about positive change in America. Our nation was founded on Biblical principles, but God has been expunged from our culture, and as a consequence, our nation is in an ethical and moral mess.
Champion the Vote is part of a nationwide grassroots movement to bring God back to the center of American life. Our goal is the rebirth of a commitment to seek His truth and to live by His principles in our personal and public lives.
In a democracy, it is the responsibility of the people to engage in the political process by voting. Voters shape the future of a nation. We believe it is our privilege and our duty to vote and that every vote counts.
Our strategy is simply this: Christians talking to other Christians about registering and voting. We believe that an army of Champions who will volunteer as little as one hour a week can make a difference, one person at a time, multiplied across the nation.
Statement of Faith
I believe that the Holy Bible is the inerrant Word of The Living God. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only One by which I can obtain salvation and have an ongoing relationship with God. I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, the atoning work of His shed blood, His resurrection and ascension, His intercession and His coming return to power and glory. I believe that those who follow Jesus are family and there should be unity among all who claim His name.
