Matthew 28:16-20; Luke 24:45-49; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us.
Jesus died so that those who believe in Him might be His family and go out sharing His message with the world. Believers are given the job of carrying the gospel to the whole world beginning with their own neighborhoods.
God Is Redeemer – God Gives The Church
God does not just save us from eternal punishment, but also redeems us. The word redemption means to buy back. This means that God sets us free from the slavery of sin through the death of His Son. God is not just redeeming us as individuals though, but He instead is redeeming a people, His church. The church is the collection of believers both universal (Christians everywhere) and local (Christians who meet together locally). God has set apart His people to declare His praises.
