On Sunday July, 5th, Elizabeth Baptist Church in Shelby, NC will take its stand with a flag raising ceremony that will display the Christian flag over the American flag. This new approach to flag etiquette symbolizes that our service and commitment to God is greater than our service and commitment to government–especially a government that coerces us to violate our commitments to God. Encourage your pastor and church leaders to do the same and start flying the flags in such a manner that it is clear we will serve God before government. If your church is willing to join ours, please take a picture of the flag pole at your church, post it on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #GodBeforeGovernment. Also, be sure to check back on our website early next week to view a video of the ceremony.
