The ministry offered by Christian Ambassadors is mail based, spiritual
growth, to persons who are imprisoned. The ministry is primarily directed to
those who are incarcerated in state or federal prisons throughout the United
States. The method of delivering
the ministry is through the postal system, providing Spiritual Growth lessons
and inspirational newsletters (My
Brother’s Keeper) to inmates who are seeking a closer walk with the
We all need spiritual growth. It is God’s desire that all persons become spiritually alive in Christ Jesus. Jesus came into the world so that through Him we might have life, and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). To have that life, we need to accept Jesus as our personal savior, and learn from him how to live in a manner that is pleasing to God.
Spiritual growth is defined as: coming to a better understanding of our relationship with God, learning what God desires for us, and applying those lessons to our daily life. God has given each of us the agency to choose whom we will follow, Himself or Satan. He is not controlling your life like a puppet on a string, and your life has not been pre-ordained so that you have no choices of your own (John 3:16-21). Though God has the power to control every choice we make, He has chosen not to. He has chosen to take the risk, and allow us to come unto Him freely on our own. The path is narrow (and righteous), and few there will be that find it (Matthew 7:14). If we desire to find and follow the path of Christ’s gospel, we must seek Christ with all of our heart (Jeremiah 29:13-14).
We at CA do not have all the answers; but Jesus does. We are willing to work with prison inmates, as brothers and sisters in Christ, to study God’s Word, to seek His Holy Spirit, and to offer the strength of unity (Matthew 18:20, John 17:20-23) to understand God’s will. A person may not get out of prison any sooner because of spiritual growth, and their life will not suddenly become free of troubles. But, they have God’s assurance that He will be there with them every day, giving them His peace and assurance that they are on the right path. “For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) Prison inmates can know the joy of being a child of God, of being loved by God. They can know the peace that passes all understanding; the peace the world does not know.
If an inmate has specific concerns about their relationship with the Lord, they are invited to write to us with their concerns. CA supports the movement of Christ’s spirit in all Christian ministries, so we will not engage in debate over theological or denominational differences. But we will take an inmate’s sincere spiritual growth concern to the Lord in prayer and respond.
We are not a pen pal program, or a Christian dating service, so please don’t expect those things from this ministry. We also cannot provide legal counsel or financial assistance. Your support in keeping this ministry focused on the spiritual will be greatly appreciated.
