Are you not able to use the building or land you purchased for your house of worship? Did you discover after the purchase that your property is not zoned for religious assembly?
RLUIPA, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, ensures your right to grow or relocate to meet the needs of your congregation, unencumbered by the discrimination or prejudice that may accompany religious land use and zoning matters.
