There are four principles to which Ambassadors of Christ adhere. They are:
We declare above all things
Jesus Christ is Lord
No Confession But Christ
No Book But the Bible
No Law But Love
No Name But the Divine
Christians are called to
God and people, as they are
individuals from a state of being or situations that limit the freedom of thought and unhealthy behaviors by presenting the saving grace of God made available to all through Jesus Christ alone
the people of God into deeper relationships with God and people with the attitude of servant leaders through Christian discipleship.
Launchmeans that as Christians God calls individuals, sets them free, and raises up leaders to set in motion the work of grace that is known in everyday life as the Church.
In Christ there is
The above principles are not a creed used as a test of fellowship. These principles are affirmations of the common ground of faith, fellowship, and commitment that united Christians in covenant relationships between themselves, their congregations, and the one, universal, Christian, and apostolic church. In every instance, Christians must seek to promote Christian unity among believers who are torn and divided by controversies over creeds, disciplines, ecclesiastical power, organization, and by the sectarian spirit of the times. The invocation of unity is the call to all Christians and congregations to come together on the basis of the Bible alone and to stand on the universal grounds of the unity of the Spirit.
Grace–a subversive value! Giving people more than they deserve.
Hope–not a guarantee of immunity from harm but a conviction that God is always present
Faith- the means to real depth in relationships of all kinds
Love–means to love all people; even the unlovely
Justice–for all (not ‘just-me’). A concept biased in favor of the disadvantaged.
Joy–impossible to legislate for this but an essential social value
Service–meaning is found in service rather than being self-centred
Peace–not just the absence of fighting but positive well-being
This video describes the mission of Ambassadors of Christ
In this declaration, we publicly profess faith in Jesus Christ, and affirm in water baptism, and by virtue of God’s grace, that we are:
People of Holiness--Not because of who we are, but because of who Jesus Christ is as Sovereign Head of the One Church.
People of the Bible--Because we affirm the Holy Bible as the divinely inspired Word of God.
People of God--Because we affirm the Triune nature of God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
People of Salvation--because we affirm that Salvation is only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation involves coming to know Christ and growing in grace to the point of being free from the bondage of intentional sin.
People of Sanctification--Because the continuing work of salvation, called sanctification, is an ongoing and progressive work of God’s gracious gift of salvation.
People of the Sacrament--Because we affirm water baptism, established by Christ as a seal of the believer’s membership in the One Church.
People of Communion--Because we affirm the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper established by Christ as a reminder to all believers, and as a testimony to the high price that was paid for the redemption of the world, and as a participation in the covenant seal unifying all believers in one Church, One Faith, One Baptism, under One Sovereign Lord.
People on Mission--Because from this foundation Ambassadors of Christ move toward our God-given mission of Being and making disciples of Jesus Christ, according to Matthew 28:18-20.
