“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” – 2 CORINTHIANS 5:18-20
The mission of any church is multi-fold, but all of the byproducts or “fruits” of the church are the result of the Gospel or “Good News.” The good news is that human beings have been restored to relationship with their Creator. By His grace we are now in fellowship with God and we have become His ambassadors. This is both an honor and responsibility.
The honor is that we are heralds of the greatest news of all time…through Christ, God is not counting mankind’s sins against them. We can be reconciled to friendship with God, in spite of our ongoing battles with sin and temptation. Obedience to God now comes as we grow in our love for Him, as we understand His unending patience with us.
The responsibility is immense because he has only one plan for letting human beings know about His offer of salvation…the declarations of His children. In His Divine providence, God has committed to us the responsibility of REACHING FRIENDS. Without the voices of loved ones speaking into their world, people without Jesus will perish in their sins.
Prism Church exists to Revive Believers, Reach Friends and Renew Culture for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Our salvation in Christ is not dependent in anyway on our good works. However, those who have been rescued are commanded to follow in Jesus’ footsteps, imitating His good works. And one of those good works is serving as His Ambassador, imploring others to be reconciled to God.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” – EPHESIANS 2:10
Join us in prayer for the mission of Prism Church; that we would collectively be the faithful, vocal ambassadors of God’s grace and love.
