OUR BELIEFS
OUR CORE VALUES
Christ-Centered

Jesus is the sole means of redemption, reconciliation, and restoration through His work on the Cross and resurrection. We believe transformation happens as people see Christ accurately and rightly value Him. That is why Christ must be at the center of everything that we do. It is God’s Word that gives us the most clear and concrete picture of Jesus. Because of that, we aim to lift up God’s Word in everything we do.

Grace-Driven

God’s grace through Jesus Christ changes everything and is the basis and power of our personal lives and ministry. In a place where political battles make grace all the rarer, we aim to be motivated by grace and to joyfully give grace away to one another.

Non-Partisan

Christ does not fit into any political ideology. His Kingdom is an eternal kingdom not of this world. As His ambassadors, it is important that we keep that independent voice. We are not bipartisan, which is allegiance to both sides. Neither are we partisan, which is allegiant to one. We are non-partisan, which is allegiant to no political party.

Relationally-Built

We move at the speed of relationship through the Holy Spirit’s leading. We move at the speed of intentional relationships with both the church and the government. It is in relationship that people share their lives with one another. It is the heart of the Church Ambassador Network to move beyond the surface level and to engage in deeper Christ-centered relationships that lead to changed lives.

Partnership-Minded

Christ created the Church as a diverse body, and He designed both the institution of God’s Church and government. Just as every part of the body is needed, so is each institution. It is the heart of the Church Ambassador Network to build partnerships between churches and between the church and government to serve people and bring Christ glory.

Prayer-Focused

Our mission is dependent on prayer, knowing God moves through and changes lives through prayer. We pray collectively as the Church that God would move in the heart of “kings,” bring revival to His Church and re-ignite its flame for the gospel and Great Commission.

OUR BELIEFS

  1. God desires ALL people to be saved (2 Peter 3:9) (1 Timothy 2:4).
  2. God does not fit neatly into political parties or political theories. He is not a Republican, Democrat, or Independent. He is God. Neither is He conservative, liberal, or moderate. He is God (1 Corinthians 1:25).
  3. America is not a covenant nation, like biblical Israel. It is a nation that has often been blessed because of God’s grace and because it followed the Lord, His principles, and His precepts (Psalm 33:12).
  4. Moralism does not equal spiritual transformation (Romans 10:3) (Romans 2).
  5. Only the Gospel has the power to properly transform people, who together transform a nation.
  6. The Church is not a worldly voice. It is an ambassador of a heavenly kingdom.
  7. The power of true cultural renewal lies in the Word of God, not in the halls of kings.
  8. Both the Church and the government are institutions created by God. They have unique roles that must remain distinct, but must work together under God (Romans 13) (2 Chronicles 19:11).
  9. The king has been uniquely called by God to administer justice with the aid of the timeless counsel of the Church (2 Kings 12:2) (Romans 13) (2 Samuel 8:15).
  10. As Paul ministered to both the Jew and the Gentile, we will minister to the Republican, Democrat, and Independent in unique ways that never compromise the truths of the eternal Word of God.
  11. Our identity is not in a political party. We stand for God’s Word, and ask others to join us there (Joshua 5:13-14).
  12. We understand that David ruled with justice and righteousness because he walked with the Lord, his God.
  13. We are missionaries who work to build intentional relationships with the ministers of the Lord’s institution of government with a goal to serve all, build up the saints, and win the lost.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

Statement of Faith of the Church Ambassador Network as per the by-laws of The FAMiLY Leader Foundation:

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is 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 in His personal return in power and glory.

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

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 resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

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