AMERICA (RA) is a evangelistic organization based in the birthplace of America, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and desires to be in the full Will of God and to adhere entirely to the teachings of the Bible. We have a passion to serve the Lord and are devoted to reaching the lost, so that they might come unto the knowledge of the truth and be saved.
As Christians, we believe that "it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." (Hebrews 9:27) We believe in the reality of an eternal Heaven and Hell, and the words of Christ, who said, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:3) Therefore, out of love for our neighbor and in obedience to Christ's command to "preach the Gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15), we act upon these truths without reservation and GO OUT into the streets and communities of America declaring the word of God and proclaiming the Good News.
We must "seek and save that which was lost" just like Jesus did. (Luke 19:10) We must go to those who would never come into our churches -- the atheists, the religious, the self-righteous, the God-hating -- and win their souls to Christ. Jesus said that He went out into the streets to purposefully pursue the lost, for He "came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." (Luke 5:32)
The Holy Scripture declares, "How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" (Romans 10:14-15)
We are commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ to teach all nations -- including ours -- to observe all things He has commanded. Jesus declared, "...All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you..." (Matthew 28:18-20)
Sin destroys lives, families, communities, and nations. The Bible explains, "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." (Proverbs 14:34) It is for this reason that we must combat the moral decay and darkness of our nation since we are the preservative and light. Jesus declared, "Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house." (Matthew 5:13)
For so long, as followers of Christ, we have allowed Satan to invade our communities through the murder of the unborn (abortion), the entertainment and pornography industries, religious institutions, sexually perverse establishments, homosexual parades and other celebrations of sin without a word from the Christian therein. God has called us to "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression..." (Isaiah 58:1)
We must lift up our voice like a trumpet. We must go out into the world and declare the word of God in front of the abortion facilities and sexually perverse establishments, and at the homosexual parades and other sin celebrations, calling "all men everywhere to repent." (Acts 17:30) The light of Christ must invade the darkness!
Jesus said, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." If we love God, we will obey his commandments, and if we love our neighbors, we will go to them with the word of God, so that they might be saved. "[F]aith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)
Whether it be the public proclamation of the Gospel message (Romans 10:14-15), opening thy mouth for the voiceless (Proverbs 31:8-9), preaching to the poor and comforting the brokenhearted (Luke 4:18), warning the wicked of their way (Ezekiel 33:8-9), or working to preserve our liberties to do so, Repent America continues to "fight the good fight of faith." (1 Timothy 6:12)
