Acts 16:35-40 | No Authority But God
It is under God's exclusive authority in which anyone is permitted to act or rule, be it civil governments to local churches to parents and us as individuals. Any attempt to subvert or ignore God's law is welcoming His righteous judgement and should be corrected. With this truth in focus, we as a church recognize that our mission doesn't change (though the world constantly wavers around us). We are proclaimers of the Gospel, ambassadors of Christ, advocates for the weak and a voice of reason to the strong... we are God's mouthpiece to the world until Jesus returns.
