Here is some additional information on AFA:
WHO IS AFA?
American Family Association (AFA) a non-profit 501(c3) organization was founded in 1977 by Donald E. Wildmon, who was pastoring First United Methodist Church in Southaven, Mississippi, at the time. Since 1977, AFA has been on the frontlines of America’s culture war. The original name of the ministry was National Federation for Decency but was changed to American Family Association (AFA) in 1988.
Today, AFA is one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country with over two million online supporters and approximately 180,000 paid subscribers to the AFA Journal, the ministry’s monthly magazine. In addition, AFA owns and operates nearly 200 radio stations across the country under the American Family Radio (AFR) banner.
Other divisions of AFA include OneNewsNow.com, an online news provider that is syndicated around the world. AFA maintains activist web sites such as OneMillionMoms.com and OneMillionDads.com that rally Christian activists to contact companies asking them to drop their advertising from objectionable TV shows. AFA web sites average over 40 million hits and five million visitors each month.
AFA uses all these means to communicate an outspoken, resolute, Christian voice throughout America.
The mission of the American Family Association is to inform, equip, and activate individuals to strengthen the moral foundations of American culture, and give aid to the church here and abroad in its task of fulfilling the Great Commission.
PHILOSOPHICAL STATEMENT The American Family Association believes that God has communicated absolute truth to mankind, and that all people are subject to the authority of God’s Word at all times. Therefore AFA believes that a culture based on biblical truth best serves the well-being of our nation and our families, in accordance with the vision of our founding documents; and that personal transformation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest agent of biblical change in any culture.
ACTION STATEMENT The American Family Association acts to:
(1) restrain evil by exposing the works of darkness; (2) promote virtue by upholding in culture that which is right, true and good according to Scripture; (3) convince individuals of sin and challenge them to seek Christ’s grace and forgiveness; (4) motivate people to take a stand on cultural and moral issues at the local, state and national levels; and (5) encourage Christians to bear witness to the love of Jesus Christ as they live their lives before the world.
To that end, AFA spurs activism directed to:
- Preservation of Marriage and the Family
- Decency and Morality
- Sanctity of Human Life
- Media Integrity
AFA is also on the cutting edge of media technology. In mid-2009, AFA became one of the first Christian ministries to employ Internet television by launching two channels, the AFA Channel and Home School Channel, in conjunction with Sky Angel IPTV, a global Christian-based Internet television service. Both channels broadcast wholesome and/or educational programming with a decidedly Biblical worldview. Several months earlier, AFA launched AFRTalk – daily 24-hour radio and television programming comprised of one-to-two hour segments – hosted by professional broadcasters whose mission is to inform and engage viewers on issues important to Christians and families. In addition, AFA also communicates through several web sites, keeps supporters informed through timely action alerts, and broadcasts music and inspirational programming through its nearly 200 station radio network. It also provides daily news through OneNewsNow.com, AFA Report, and the AFA Journal.
We believe in holding accountable companies that sponsor programs attacking traditional family values. We also believe in commending those companies that act responsibly regarding programs they support.
It is AFA’s goal to be a champion of Christian activism. If you are alarmed by the increasing ungodliness and depravity assaulting our nation, tired of cursing the darkness, and ready to light a bonfire, please join us. Do it for your children and grandchildren.
