Baptist Built America: Liberty Rises

The purpose of the Baptist Built America documentary project is to present what has been forgotten about Baptist involvement in the formative years of America. Baptists have fought for America’s liberties and laid the foundation for future freedom. Baptist Built America: Liberty Rises shows how the liberties we enjoy today had their roots in Biblical principles, demonstrated by the Baptist standard.

Men for Christ was started to reach men of the twenty-first century with the gospel of Christ and equip them to serve in ministry that is anchored in truth, sourced in the local church, and focused on God’s pleasure.

The Baptist Built America documentary will show the accurate story of the early American Baptists, and their role in the founding of this country. Through interviews with knowledgeable historians and film-style storytelling, learn the true story of our founding fathers.
