Vision Statement: That God would use Ambassadors for Biblical Civics to motivate American Christians to become more involved as an influence for good in our culture – particularly in the political arena – and to encourage those in the Body of Christ to hold the line against cultural decay by making a stand for righteousness in an increasingly unrighteous society.
To promote Christian involvement in the political arena by developing training materials, educational tools, and Biblical Civics curriculum and providing these resources to churches and other Christian organizations to equip and inspire Godly men and women to take an active role in their government and fulfill their charge in Matthew 5:13-16 to be "salt and light" to the world.
What We Do...
Educate Christians about their calling to be Salt and Light in the political process and how they can get involved in that process. We do this by:
--Developing curriculum materials which teach the political process from a Biblical worldview.
--Introducing ABC curriculum to churches and other Christian organizations who are interested in offering Biblical Civics training to their membership.
--Maintaining a website for the purpose of making ABC educational resources available online for Christians interested in Biblical Civics.
In June of 2014, several of us who had been involved in grassroots politics for 20 plus years met together to determine what role American Christians should be playing in the political arena. We wanted to know why so many Christians who had previously been engaged in politics had withdrawn from their involvement at a time they were needed most. Other Christians have never been involved because they didn't see the need to do so, didn't want to, or never knew how to get involved with the process. We asked God for wisdom and guidance...
Rather than focusing on a particular political party or group, we believe God called us to reach out to Christians in the local churches to encourage them to be obedient stewards of their U.S. citizenship. We decided to use our collective experiences as evangelical Christians from different churches, seminary education, involvement in politics, etc. to develop a curriculum for training members of the body of Christ.
The first part of that curriculum was the development of a PowerPoint called Biblical Civics 101 to use as a tool for educating Christians using Biblical principles applied to the political arena. Church contacts we had would act as liaisons or "ambassadors" to their churches (or Christian groups), arranging a presentation of the ABC PowerPoint to help educate their members in biblically-based civics. We also developed educational bookmarkers and handouts for "equipping the saints," so to speak. Out of this process we named our group Ambassadors for Biblical Civics to reflect what we believe God has called us to do.
