Public Affairs and Religious Liberty

The Public Affairs and Religious Liberty (PARL) department promotes and maintains religious liberty, with particular emphasis upon liberty of conscience. Religious liberty includes the human right to have or adopt the religion of one’s choice, to change religious belief according to conscience, to manifest one’s religion individually or in community with fellow believers, in worship, observance, practice, witness, and teaching, subject to respect for the equivalent rights of others.

This Department works along with the Public Affairs and Religious Liberty department in the conference and union  and is involved with representation to organizations, Governments, Parliaments and other decision-making Assemblies of all kinds to ensure that religious liberty is recognized and that no infringements of religious rights occur.
