To secure the Blessings of Liberty

Welcome to the online home of the Foundation for Constitutional Education. Our mission is to declare the God-given blessings of liberty and to educate citizens about the representative form of government as established in the Constitution of the United States. We approach this mission from a biblical perspective, acknowledging our Creator, not the government, as the Giver of our rights.

The United States of America was founded on biblical principles, which is one of the reasons God has blessed our nation in so many ways over the years. We examine the Scriptures, our founding documents and the records of history for a greater understanding and appreciation of our rights and responsibilities as citizens. We also educate citizens about our free enterprise system, which has helped to make our nation the most prosperous in the world.

A phrase from the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution says that one of the purposes of the document was “to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity.” We invite you to explore our website so you too can appreciate the blessings of liberty and communicate this knowledge to others.
