APAC is an unincorporated, grassroots association of Christians in New York State’s Capital Region that seeks to broaden Christian influence in Local, State, and Federal politics and public policies.
APAC works together with established ministries and public policy groups to educate the public in general, and Christians in particular, on political issues affecting them. APAC also seeks to motivate people to register and vote using Biblical values as a guide.
Lastly, APAC encourages and equips people of faith to take a proactive approach to politics and the political process.
“The time has come for Christians to vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics, or the Lord will curse them…God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for, unless the church will take right ground. Politics are a part of religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to their country as part of their duty to God…God will bless or curse this nation according to the course Christians take in politics.”
— Rev. Charles Finney (1792- 1875)
Attorney turned evangelist, renowned for helping bring massive revival to Upstate New York in the first half of the 19th century.
