We live in troubled times: acts of terrorism, racial and socioeconomic divisions, corruption in our judicial systems, abortion, human trafficking, and an overall aggressive advancement of an anti-God agenda in education, businesses, and entertainment. Selfishness and hatred is being promoted while truth is being destroyed.
The Alliance believes that the reason why we see this decline and unrest in our country is due to the silence and disengagement of the Church.
Over the years, America Christianity has become increasingly inactive and apathetic toward the needs around them and the responsibility of acting as Christ’s ambassadors to our communities and culture.
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
From the Word, we understand that our battle is not ultimately against our fellow man, but against Satan and his forces. This reality shows us that not only must we lovingly and earnestly seek to free those that oppose us with the truth and the Gospel, but also that it is through this truth and the transforming power of the Gospel that will bring healing to our nation.
Being Christ’s ambassadors also includes bringing healing and redemption to the world around us to show a picture of Christ looks like to others. Understanding our dominion over creation and our possession of the trans-formative Gospel, we should focus on seeking justice and righteous rule through government, defending the oppressed, caring for the poor, fatherless, and sick, glorifying Christ through cultural expression, educating in truth and wisdom, and utilizing our talents toward innovation.
The Alliance seeks to call the Church to repent of its apathy and inaction to re-engage the culture by living lives of courage, sacrifice, and service.
The Alliance then plans to spark a Christian grassroots movement by uniting Christians to transform our state with the truth of the Gospel and the wisdom of His ways.
1. Enlist and equip Christians across the state for cultural engagement
2. Connect and coordinate among the ministries, non-profits, and Christian activists toward a concerted effort for Christ.
Our divisions represent the various facets of society and culture. When Christians join the Alliance, they can join one or more divisions so that they can network and partner with other Christians across the state within their cultural areas of interest and expertise.
