GBCm Ambassadors For Christ

Posted by Site Admin On 5:00 AM

Ambassadors for Christ (AFC) is Grace Baptist Church Mandaue's organization for Teens (High School and College Students).  The AFC have regular Sunday fellowships and other weekly gatherings including their Thursday prayer time. 

The Ambassadors for Christ of Grace Baptist Church was organized last June 2013 to accommodate the growing number of high school and college students in church. Inspired by the words from 2 Corinthians 5:20, the organization aims to develop young people who, geared by the Word of God, will represent Christ effectively in church, in their homes, and in their schools.

Sunday Fellowships filled with youth games and dynamic teaching of the Word and Youth Prayer Night on Thursdays are regular activities prepared for and by the group along with sports and other outdoor activities from time to time.

Since 2013, the circle has grown to more than 15 young people in church who are actively involved in the church's ministries-- choir, Bible Club, VBS and Balamban Outreach.

Our Sunday School classes for our Teens are divided into two classes: Teens Girls and Teens Boys. They study practical lessons for daily living to help them grow.

Some of our Teens are also members of our Chamber Ensemble Project. They have inter-church gatherings and yearly camps.

Our AFC Theme Song:

Not I, But Christ
Words: A.A. Whiddington / Music: Mac Lynch

1. Not I, but Christ be honored, loved, exalted, Not I, but Christ be seen, be known and heard; Not I, but Christ in every look and action, Not I, but Christ in every thought and word.

Chorus: Oh, to be saved from myself, dear Lord! Oh, to be lost in Thee!
Oh, that it may be no more I, dear Lord, but Christ that lives in me.

2. Not I, but Christ to gently soothe in sorrow,
Not I, but Christ to wipe the falling tear;
Not I, but Christ to lift the heavy burden,
Not I, but Christ to hush away all fear.

3. Christ, only Christ, ere long will fill my vision,
Glory excelling soon, full soon I’ll see;
Christ, only Christ, my every wish fulfilling,
Christ, only Christ, my all in all to be.
