Illinois Family Action, the non-profit and tax-exempt legislative action arm of Illinois Family Institute was founded in 2010 to promote the common good and general welfare, primarily by means of education, including direct and grassroots lobbying. IFA works to advance public policies to protect the sanctity of human life, Christian marriage and the natural family, and other initiatives which are consistent with principles of good government.

Illinois Family Action is a 501(c)(4), non-profit political advocacy and lobbying organization and is dedicated to preserving and advancing the interests of family, faith, and freedom in the political arena.

Illinois Family Action seeks to fortify the traditional foundations of civil society through efforts to educate, inform and influence elected officials in support of the country’s historic ideals of equality under the law, and the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness on which the nation was founded.


IFA Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the infallible, authoritative word of God and inerrant in its original autographs.

We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three Persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory, to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment to completion.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary.

We believe in the life everlasting for those who place their trust and faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.


IFA Statement on the Family

Because the family and even its very definition is under attack, the Illinois Family Institute is committed to encourage, defend, nurture, and uphold the traditional family in our society, primarily through research and education.

We affirm the family as that group of persons with whom we are linked as parents or children or siblings or spouses or kin– by birth, by adoption, or by marriage.

We deny that “family” includes two or more persons of the same or opposite sex who live together outside the institution of marriage whether for convenience or homosexuality or romance or experimentation or otherwise.
