The Foundation of Our Work - Principles

Principles - Unchangeable moral rules based upon the Word of God which guide our decisions, conduct and life. 

Preferences - Decisions and choices based upon our politics, likes, dislikes, desires and feelings based upon circumstances that make us look good, feel good, fit in or profit from. Preferences depend upon circumstances and situations and produce "situational ethics."

Preferences can destroy our testimony. Principles never will.

Founded March 20, 2013 as a 501(c)(3), non-partisan, non-denominational organization.

Led by Dorothy Burton, Former Mayor Pro Tem and City Councilmember, City of Duncanville, TX, together with Ron J. Anderson, M.D., CEO, Parkland Health and Hospital System ; Oscar Trevino, Mayor, City of North Richland Hills; Ronald E. Jones, Mayor, City of Garland; Rob Franke, Mayor, City of Cedar Hill; Helen Roberts; David Dean, former Texas Secretary of State; and, Dr. Larry Mercer - Christians in Public Service, Inc. was founded to provide a faith-based forum to teach, encourage and inspire those who serve, lead and govern. And, to provide a safe space for networking without regard to political affiliations. 

A New Day. A New Culture.

Post-pandemic, the world changed. America changed. We changed. Divisions grow deeper while relational tensions and external conflict grow wider.

We are building a new culture of leadership, not with more politics and religion but with love, truth, wisdom and guidance rooted in the timeless principles of scripture without religious or political bias. 

CIPS is an organization rooted in scripture, not nationalism. Rooted in truth, not nationalism. We have one agenda - God's, not country's. We are thankful to be that unique organization in this unique time in history to lead in this space at local levels around the globe.
