The Chalcedon Foundation promotes the idea that "historic, orthodox, Biblical Christianity should govern every area of thought and life. Chalcedon's cause is simple, radical, and comprehensive. It admits no division between the 'private' and 'public' spheres. If God is sovereign and Jesus is Lord, this divine sovereignty and Lordship is designed to engulf every aspect of human existence-not just the private and 'spiritual,' for instance."
The foundation was created by the late Rev. Rousas J. Rushdoony (d. Feb. 2001) who served as foundation president. The foundation was primarily funded by millionaire California banker Howard Ahmanson.
