To Whom it May Concern:
Our national motto “In God We Trust” is proclaimed on our nation’s currency. Obviously, our nation’s founding fathers felt that it was important for our nation to not only trust in God, but also for us to proclaim this trust on each piece of currency we exchange. Some personal research of mine has shown me that many of our nation’s founding fathers were Christians, and they founded our great nation with Christian values and beliefs.
As the founder of the Patriot companies, I too recognize the importance of having strong Christian values at the heart of our foundation. I am not offended or embarrassed to say that God the Father, God the Son (who is Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit are completely responsible for my personal success in all areas (especially my role in the Patriot companies).
Years ago I decided to make Jesus Christ the CEO of my life and of all my worldly belongings, including the companies I own. I confer with Him on all matters, and I try hard to do what’s right. This includes conducting daily company activities in a Christian-business-like manner (e.g., by working hard, providing the best value and service to our customers, conduct all dealings with honesty and integrity, and walking in love, etc.) And, it’s obvious that many employees in the Patriot companies embrace and demonstrate these Christian-business principles, and I thank them for that!
Just as our nation has been blessed for our bold proclamations and faith in God, I too believe that operating the Patriot companies with these core Christian values (and proclaiming these values) will ensure our long-term success.
