We believe it for ourselves, let's also believe it for others.

As believers, if we believe there is no condemnation for us in Christ Jesus, then also believe it for others.  Romans 8:1 does say, "to them which are in Christ Jesus".  As Christians, if we offer condemnation to unbelievers, then we offer nothing but the curse of the law.  Paul, in Galatians, tells us that all who do not keep the law perfectly [Matthew 5:17-20] is cursed by it [Galatians 3:10].  No one has the ability [Romans 3:10 and 23] to obey the law perfectly for the breaking of even one puts a person under condemnation.  The Good News is that Jesus has rescued us from that curse [Galatians 3:13].  Read Romans 3:25-26 where Paul tells how.

Romans 8:1 (emphasis mine) There is therefore now [referring to the 7th chapter] NO CONDEMNATION [Compare John 3:18; 5:24; Romans 5:18, 19] to them [2 Corinthians 5:21which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3) For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4) That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
