In 1997, Ambassador Bible Church was born out of a vision to reach all ethnic groups in the diverse Washington D.C. metropolitan area, with a longing to fulfill the Great Commission (Matt 28:19-20) and portray a picture of heaven (Rev 7:9; 14:6).
How does ABC accomplish this?
Our responsibility as God’s representatives on earth (“the Church”) is to be faithful to the role of being God’s ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:20) to all the nations. The goal of being a “multi-ethnic” community is the sovereign work of God – something we cannot control or manufacture. It is a secondary value to our desire to see God work through His power to change lives. Genuine spiritual transformation is our primary vision.
However, we believe that ABC can be diverse through its leadership; therefore ABC has been intentional in its selection of a diverse staff. We feel that multi-ethnicity is necessary to be relevant in the multicultural DC metro area and in the future of the globalized world.
In sum, the leadership of ABC reflects its desire to be culturally relevant through its diversity. If the vision of this church resonates with your heart, please come and visit us soon!
