What is the Oklahoma Faith Network?

The Oklahoma Faith Network is a project of Mainstream Oklahoma Baptists. It is a statewide group of mainstream religious leaders united in support of liberty of conscience, religious freedom, civil liberties, and strong public education. We seek to promote the positive role of religion in public life through advocacy and community education.

Our primary areas of concern include:

1. Involving religious leaders in the political process at the state legislature and the state board of education.

2. Working with the media to ensure that the religious right is not the only representative of people of faith in the news.

3. Organizing and publicizing clergy statements on important political issues of the day.

4. Training people of faith to speak with an effective religious voice on issues facing our communities.


  1. Bruce,
    I am looking forward to getting involved with OFFN.


    1. At the moment, all you need to do is sign on as a follower for this weblog.

  2. I am pleased to see that the OFFN is in the active development stage. It appears to me that an important need is being met for the non-fundamentalists in Oklahoma.

    As it grows in numbers and participants, a meaningful and constructive balance to the religio-political fundamentalists' domination of Oklahoma's governance will be welcomed.

  3. I am the Executive Director of the Tulsa Interfaith Alliance, and we are very excited about your effort. Your mission is almost identical to ours. We look forward to working together on many projects.
