Government Based On The Constitution

Now and Forever


America has been given something unique, a form of free government intended to make us a beacon of liberty on a hill. This light has the power to fight the darkness of tyranny, but there must be free and informed citizens ready to bear it. Many of us have forgotten, or simply never learned, to recognize what powers that light, and it is in danger of being snuffed out. Learn the principles, the “why” and “how” of liberty, and then get ready.

We’re taking our light to the rest of the world.


What We Do

Members of the Columbus Center and Restoration Generation engage in rigorous study of the Constitution and writings of the Founding Fathers. Students of the “Freedom Formula” teach courses in the community.

The Columbus Center provides college-level online courses and seminars on various constitutional and historical subjects. Classes are broadcast live and recordings are available to students who register.

The Constitution was intended to be a pattern of successful self-government for the nations of the world. The Columbus Center needs bilingual patriots who want to participate in teaching in foreign countries.

America’s True Manifest Destiny

The Constitution and its free institutions must be our ensign. For America has a destiny—a destiny to conquer the world,—not by force of arms, not by purchase and favor, for these conquests wash away, but by high purpose, by unselfish effort, by uplifting achievement, by a course of Christian living; a conquest that shall leave every nation free to move out to its own destiny; a conquest that shall bring, through the workings of our own example, the blessings of freedom and liberty to every people, without restraint or imposition or compulsion from us; a conquest that shall weld the whole earth together in one great brotherhood in a reign of mutual patience, forbearance, and charity, in a reign of peace to which we shall lead all others by the persuasion of our own righteous example.

~J. Reuben Clark

Healing of America Seminars

Seminar 1: God’s Hand in the Building of America

In this foundational seminar, you’ll learn all about the greatness of the American Founding Fathers and will see how they were indeed inspired of God.

You’ll appreciate more than ever that the hand of God was clearly evident in the building of this great land and will realize that the God of heaven did not establish the first free people in modern times just to see them collapse into oblivion. Most important, you’ll understand that America can be healed and that the Founders’ dream can be renewed and realized.

This seminar was presented recently over a series of four weekly broadcasts. Recordings are available for review upon registration.

Seminar 2: The Founders’ Charter of Freedom

Nobody seems to talk much anymore about the Constitution as the measuring stick for proposed legislation. When they do mention the Constitution, do you find yourself wishing you really knew more about that inspired document? Have you just not known where to go or whom to trust to get the understanding of the Constitution that you really want?

As you participate in Seminar 2 of the Healing of America series, you’ll study the entire Constitution from the viewpoint of the Founding Fathers. You’ll see how the trend away from using the Constitution to evaluate new legislation has allowed emotionalism and private interests to become the new standard of measurement for most laws. What you learn in this session will enable you to understand and appreciate the Constitution as you probably never have before—and you’ll be ready for the critically important topics that you’ll study in Seminar 3.

This seminar was presented recently over a series of four weekly broadcasts. Recordings are available for review upon registration.

Seminar 3: Attacks on the Charter of Freedom

Sadly, “the unhinging of America” has a real ring of truth in today’s political and economic climate, doesn’t it? Have you been wondering what’s really happening to our country and what you can do to get America back on track?

In Seminar 3, you’ll study the people, organizations, and groups that are using their time and resources to try to change the direction of America to serve their own self-interests. While avoiding focusing on the negative, this session will open your eyes to how far our country has been allowed to drift from the Founders’ original principles.

Just as scientists cannot cure cancer until they find out what causes it, we the American people will never be able to heal America without knowing what is causing it to be sick. As you participate in this seminar, you will receive documentation describing the 100 major problems facing America as a result of America’s abandonment of constitutional principles and will learn how the Founding Fathers forewarned us of these problems.

This seminar was presented recently over a series of four weekly broadcasts. Recordings are available for review upon registration.
