Ambassador’s Creed

An ambassador is… 

§ Ready.  An Ambassador is alert for chances to represent Christ and will not back away from a challenge or an opportunity.

§ Patient.  An Ambassador won’t quarrel, but will listen in order to understand, then with gentleness seek to respectfully engage those who disagree.

§ Reasonable.  An Ambassador has informed convictions (not just feelings), gives reasons, asks questions, aggressively seeks answers, and will not be stumped by the same challenge twice.

§ Tactical.  An Ambassador adapts to each unique person and situation, maneuvering with wisdom to challenge bad thinking, presenting the truth in an understandable and compelling way.

§ Clear.  An Ambassador is careful with language and will not rely on Christian lingo nor gain unfair advantage by resorting to empty rhetoric.

§ Fair.  An Ambassador is sympathetic and understanding towards others and will acknowledge the merits of contrary views.

§ Honest.  An Ambassador is careful with the facts and will not misrepresent another’s view, overstate his own case, or understate the demands of the Gospel.

§ Humble.  An Ambassador is provisional in his claims, knowing that his understanding of truth is fallible.  He will not press a point beyond what his evidence allows.

§ Attractive.  An Ambassador will act with grace, kindness, and good manners.  He will not dishonor Christ in his conduct.

§ Dependent.  An Ambassador knows that effectiveness requires joining his best efforts with God’s power.
