Statement Of Faith
Kingdom Ambassadors International both recognizes and adheres to a number of fundamental principles in the Word of God that we consider to be absolute, unquestionable and foundational to all of our activities and initiatives. These principles are as follows:
The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and as such it is the ultimate authority in determining truth, the will of God, and matters of faith and conduct (2 Tim. 3:16).
There is one God, eternal and self-existent, manifested in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – who is the creator of all things, visible and invisible, and has total sovereignty over all (Deut. 6:4; Is. 43:10-11; Matt 28:19).
Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Son of man, having been conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the virgin Mary to be the Savior of the world and the redeemer of mankind (Matt. 1:18; Luke 1:26-33; John 1:1, 14; 3:16-17; 1 Tim. 2:5).
Jesus Christ was crucified upon a cross whereupon He died and was then buried in a tomb. On the third day He arose bodily from the grave, then later ascended into heaven where He is presently seated at the right hand of the Father (Acts 2:30-36; 1 Cor. 15:3-8; Heb. 9:11-15; 10:12; 1 Pet. 2:21-24).
The Holy Spirit was given to glorify Christ and is resident within every Kingdom citizen on earth. He empowers Kingdom citizens to produce fruitful Christ-like character, as well as manifest supernatural gifts and graces as they yield to His influence. He is able to guide, teach and lead men into all truth, convicting men of sin, righteousness and judgment (John 15:26-27; 16:7-15; Acts 1:8; 2:38-39; Rom. 12:6-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-11, 28-31; Gal. 5:22-23).
Man was created in the image of God, but through Adam, all were born into sin and, therefore, in need of redemption and justification through personal faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ who alone is the source of eternal life (Gen. 1:26-28; 3:1-19; Rom. 3:21-26; 5:12-21).
God’s Kingdom Community, otherwise known as the Church, is comprised of all persons, believing and confessing Jesus Christ, who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and joined together into one spiritual Body to become a nation of Kingdom citizens who will reign with Christ forever (1 Cor. 10:17; 12:12-27; Eph. 2:19-22; 2 Tim. 2:12; 1 Pet. 2:5; Rev. 5:10; 20:6; 22:5).
Jesus Christ shall return to judge both the living and the dead, at which time there shall be a bodily resurrection of all who are in the grave, some to everlasting life and some to everlasting punishment (John 5:25-30; Acts 24:15; 1 Cor. 15:35-55; 1 Thess. 4:13-17; Heb. 9:27-28; Rev 20:11-15).
The ministries of the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher were given by Jesus to His Kingdom Community (Church) to express and demonstrate a particular dimension of His nature and character. It requires all five operating within their proper order to effectively equip and perfect the saints for the work of the ministry so that the entire Kingdom Community can be matured to Christ’s stature (1 Cor. 12:28; Eph. 4:11-16).
Apostles and prophets have been ordained of God to receive divine wisdom and revelation of Biblical truth, and then proclaim it to His Kingdom Community (Church). Their primary emphasis is that of building in the earth, especially in the Kingdom Community, that which has been revealed from heaven (Acts 3:21; Eph. 2:20).
God’s Kingdom Community (Church) is in a state of progressive restoration and reformation from all the apostasy, religious tradition, as well as spiritual and mental idolatry and corruption that has crept in through the past centuries. This process will continue until she is fully matured and perfected in the image of Jesus Christ, culminating with Christ’s return (Acts 3:21; Eph. 4:11-16; 5:25-27).
God’s Kingdom Community, also known as the Body of Christ or the Church, is universal and invisible, but is expressed in the individual and local Kingdom community level (Rom. 12:4-5; 1 Cor. 6:15; 12:12-31; Eph. 2:19-22; 4:11-16; 1 Pet. 2:5).
Local Kingdom communities (churches) are to be self-governed and autonomous, with a plurality of co-equal elders working together with the senior elder to provide leadership and government in submission to Jesus Christ the Head (Acts 13:1; 11:29-30; 14:23; 15:2, 4, 6, 22, 23; 16:4; 20:17; 21:18; 1 Tim. 5:17; Tit. 1:5; Jam. 5:14).
God’s Kingdom Community in the earth exists for a higher purpose than itself; therefore, its emphasis is not on conducting better church services or engaging in meaningless religious activity for tradition’s sake. The emphasis is on the agenda of God and the advancement of His Kingdom on earth. This advance will be opposed by spiritual principalities and dark forces working through antichrist systems and/or people both within and without the Church, but they must never be allowed to stop the advance (Matt. 6:10; 16:18; Mark 9:1; Luke 22:18; Eph. 6:10-13; Rev. 12:9-12).
The Kingdom of God is advanced in the earth through a community of people (Kingdom citizens) who have completely divorced themselves from the inaccurate culture and values of this world’s system and are aggressively pursuing Christ-likeness in every dimension of their lives. They are not a passive but prophetic people, actively engaged through proclamation as well as participation of the Kingdom of God in the earth as they seek to fulfill His divine initiatives (Rev. 12:10-11).
The Kingdom of God is not fully preached until and unless it is accompanied by signs, wonders and miracles which were given by God to validate His message (Mrk. 16:15-18; John 10:37-38; 14:11; Acts 4:33; 5:12).
