As new creations in Christ, reconciled to God through faith in Jesus, we have been given the ministry and message of reconciliation, and commissioned and sent as ambassadors for Christ into the world - we are the embodiment of the King we have been sent to represent. Our lives and our words must make clear His character and plea "Be reconciled to God." As ambassadors for Christ, we have come to see and understand the true distinction between people, and it influences how we relate to everyone we meet - "do they belong to Jesus or not?" As ambassadors for Christ, we believe the new creation is God's greatest work; reconciling the world to Himself through Jesus, imputing the righteousness of Christ to sinners, through the substitutionary death of Christ on the cross, in our place. And as ambassadors for Christ, we understand our role as His representatives, 24-7, we die to our own agendas and dreams to serve His kingdom, and we passionately engage people who are far from God with the ministry and message of reconciliation.
Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:14-21
