Pastors are Vital
As Ephesians 6:10-13 reminds us, our problems are not only political and cultural, they are spiritual, requiring spiritual solutions and spiritual leaders. That’s why Wisconsin Family Council considers pastors to be essential in championing transformation in Wisconsin.
Join our Church Ambassador Network! At the Church Ambassador Network, we hold to the teachings of Scripture that government is an institution of God’s with the purpose of punishing evil and rewarding good, and that those who serve in it are God’s ministers. We believe that government is separate from the Church, and has its own unique responsibility. However, government needs moral guidance and counsel from the Church to fulfill its purpose to punish evil and reward good. It needs the true north that the Church provides through its head, Christ, and the Word of God.
