Spiritual Proclamations of Congress
November 1, 1777
Congress proclaims a day of thanksgiving

In the New England Colonies, a cycle of fasting in the spring and giving thanks to God in the fall had existed since the seventeenth century. And, beginning with November 1777, Congress began to use that full cycle of fasting in the spring and giving thanks in the fall, exercising its influence over the states—something that was continued until the end of the Revolution. In fact, the last spiritual proclamation issued by Congress was issued in August 1784 and was a thanksgiving proclamation issued in gratitude for the cessation of the War. This proclamation issued by the Continental Congress was only one of the proclamations issued over nearly a decade asking states to fast, pray, and give thanks to God. Congress Asked America to Fast

Sixteen such proclamations were issued by Congress from 1775 to 1784, asking states to observe these Christian practices that God’s favor might be secured in America’s bid for freedom. The sixteen proclamations discussed in our book are a small portion of the thousands of pieces of evidence that demonstrate America’s Christian heritage. Get your copy today!

America's Founding Fathers and the Bible: A Select Study of America's Christian Origin

Contrary to the contemporary mantra that America was birthed as a secular nation, the historical evidence demonstrates that America was founded by Christians who wished to enjoy the liberty to freely express their Christian faith. Lamentably, Christians have forgotten and neglected the Christian heritage bequeathed to them by America's Founding Fathers and have allowed secularists to disparage and deny what was given to them at such a great price. America's Founding Fathers and the Bible briefly describes a portion of America's Christian heritage, particularly during the rise of nationalism when America was shaping its national government. During this era, the Founding Fathers affirmed both the principles and practices of the Bible. By no means exhaustive, this work demonstrates that America's Founding Fathers clearly intended to perpetuate the Christian faith, in both private and public observances. The Founding Fathers left a legacy of publicly honoring the principles of Christianity and fully intended that succeeding generations of Americans should do the same. Two Founding Fathers manipulated by secularists to advance the false argument of an irreligious American origin are Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson. In this second edition, their unorthodox opinions are considered and placed within the context of their contribution to America's Christian origin. Readers will learn why these Founding Fathers cannot be used as advocates of irreligion with regard to America's origin.
America, this is our Christian heritage!

Christian Heritage Fellowship seeks to speak to several specific areas of need. First, we seek to advocate a biblical worldview as opposed to other world religions or secular humanism. Second, our ministry seeks to recover and advocate the truth concerning America’s Christian heritage and the positive influence of Christianity around the world. Finally, it is our desire to provide this information to believers (and non-believers) that they might be inspired to live lives pleasing to God.
