YOUTH MINISTRY MISSION STATEMENT
Our Youth Ministry is anchored in the teaching from Luke Chapter 10, verse 27: 'You shall love the Lord thy God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.'
We aim to help our teens and young adults move beyond merely knowing about God, to truly knowing Him in their hearts.
Our goals include:
- Knowing God: We wish for our young people to understand that, in all circumstances and situations, God is present and will see them through as long as they love and serve Him with all their heart, soul, strength, and mind. We believe that God yearns for people to know Him, and has revealed Himself through His creation, Jesus Christ, and His Word.
- Living like Christ: Our mission is to convey to our teens the importance of living and behaving in a manner pleasing to God. This transformation happens when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and abide in Him, which is our goal for each and every individual.
- Applying Scripture to Daily Life: We aim to instill the values of truth, honesty, love, and faith in our teens and encourage them to apply these principles in their daily lives in service of God and their neighbors. We strive to foster a servant's heart within our teens, a key trait of leadership. We emphasize the importance of obeying God and incorporating scripture into daily life. Doing so allows our teens to experience God's blessings. Conversely, we educate them about the potentially devastating consequences of failing to do so.
