Religious Freedom

Lawyer Carolina Castillo
Department of Religious Freedom,
Trust Services Public relations

Our department has historically been very involved with representations before governments, congresses and all types of decision-making assemblies, in an effort to ensure that religious freedom is guaranteed for everyone and everywhere, as well as to try to prevent violations from occurring. In this way the department of religious freedom demonstrates true Christian character, thus serving as an effective means to remove prejudices against us.




Represent the Church before governments, other religions and other National and International organizations, maintaining good relationships to monitor and interpret recent events that may reflect prophetic scenarios. In this way we will be able to assist members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, who are discriminated against or persecuted for practicing their beliefs, around the world.




Act as the point of contact with governments on general matters and foster a clearer understanding of the Christian’s obligations before God and the government. In this way the Church will be informed about the significant changes in the religious and political world that impact religious freedom and conscience.




Take positive action to protect and promote religious freedom as a fundamental human right. This includes freedom of conscience and belief, freedom of worship, and freedom for unrestricted activities of the Church.
