“The Embassy” – Why did we choose this name?
What is an Embassy?
An embassy is a mission to a foreign government headed by an ambassador. It has the responsibility of representing the agenda of the home state while residing in a foreign land. We can think of no better analogy for the Church. The body of Christ is called to represent the agenda of our heavenly King while we reside in a land that does not fully recognize him as King. Paul was making such an assertion in 2nd Corinthians 5:20 when he identified believers as, “…ambassadors for Christ…” Since we are ambassadors, then our corporate mission is, inherently, an embassy. As an embassy of heaven we desire to model, nurture, and display God’s kingdom here on earth; specifically as we pursue a kingdom agenda in the city of Denver. Paul recognized such a commissioning and reminded us of it by referring to believers as citizens of heaven (Phil. 3:20).
How can we know the mission of an Embassy?
If one desires to know the objectives of an embassy, one must only study the culture of the kingdom that they represent. In our case, since we represent a heavenly kingdom, we strive for a culture that reflects Heaven (Matt. 6:10). This is a culture in which familial community unites us, discipleship is our joy, worship is passionate, and Christ is King. As an embassy of heaven, it is our goal to display such a kingdom agenda in the city of Denver.
