It’s a simple, but powerful idea. The American Pastors Network (APN,www.americanpastorsnetwork.net) is announcing a new initiative called “We Will Stand,” which invites America’s pastors to intentionally band together and faithfully stand for biblical truth in the public square, and let their congregations and communities know they, too, can be involved. The time is now.
“At perhaps no other time in history has it been more important for the nation’s pastors and churches to work diligently to cultivate real change in our society,” said APN President Sam Rohrer. “By adding their names to the American Pastors Network’s new ‘We Will Stand’ initiative, pastors nationwide can join with thousands of other courageous and faithful pastors in leading their local church family to be Ambassadors of Christ by committing to preach, pray, encourage and engage.”
Pastors who sign the “We Will Stand—Preach, Pray, Encourage, Engage” pledge will commit to the following:
• I WILL PREACH PASSIONATELY the whole counsel of God, with a biblical worldview that communicates the priority of the Gospel to a fallen, broken humanity. It means exhorting the saints to apply biblical principles to their own lives, the lives of their family, and the culture of their neighborhood, state, and country.
• I WILL PRAY FERVENTLY with faith, obedience, discipline, fasting.
• I WILL ENCOURAGE CONGREGATIONS to be salt and light by engaging the culture with truth, practicing good citizenship and voting informed by sound information and biblical principles.
• I WILL ENGAGE AS A MINISTER TOGETHER with civic leaders through prayer, encouragement and education on critical issues.
