Formerly known as Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Affairs. Changed its name to Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty on Sep. 27, 2004.
"Composed of representatives of 15 national, state and regional bodies in the United States and supported by thousands of churches and individuals across the country, the BJC works with a wide range of religious organizations providing education about and advocacy for religious liberty. The BJC is the only religious agency devoted solely to religious liberty and the institutional separation of church and state. While primarily supported by Baptists, the BJC fights for religious liberty for all, including Jewish, Muslim and a host of Christian groups, who count on the BJC for leadership."
"The BJC's mission is to defend and extend God-given religious liberty for all, furthering the Baptist heritage that champions the principle that religion must be freely exercised, neither advanced nor inhibited by government."
