OUR PHILOSOPHY Ambassadors for Christ Church have a strong conviction regarding the Church of Christ. This foundational conviction affects everything that ACF does and it serves as a guide to every policy that ACF Establishes. ACF constantly seeks to balance a loving and caring responsibility that we have to all believers in Christ with recognition of the special place that God has set everyone in their own place within the local churches. ACF”s philosophy can be seen in three ways. Members ministering to each other in the Local Churches ie every member is a minister. ACF is a network of churches. This means that churches and ministers of like vision and doctrine have voluntarily associated themselves for the purpose of fellowship, encouragement, vision expansion, equipping and strength. This also means that members themselves need to be aware that when they become a part of ACF, they are not only asking for resources and strength, but they are also indicating that they desire to give their resources and strength to others within the fellowship. ACF provides a structure and a context where these meaningful relationships can be cultivated, but it is up to each member/Local Church, along with the ACF Leadership to sense a personal responsibility for one another as “our brother’s keeper” Autonomy with Accountability. One of the strong doctrinal foundations of ACF is its conviction that every local church is an autonomous organization, and yet interdependent. That means that each local church is to be self-governing, self-supporting and self-propagating. On the one hand, there is a desire to be a catalyst to bring pastors and church leaders together for the purpose of fellowship, relationship and strength. We are careful to promote such cohesiveness while at the same time making sure not to violate the structural integrity and authority of the local assembly.
