We seek to meet the spiritual, emotional, and social needs of our youth in a warm and accepting environment. We desire to become a community of believers that allows God to change our lives, build the church, and impact our world. We believe there are five biblical mandates that will help us accomplish this goal:
1) EVANGELISM- Matthew 28:19-20
One of the most important priorities of our youth ministry is to reach out to unsaved youth in our community and give them a clear presentation of the gospel. We will accomplish this through visitation, youth meetings, and activities specifically designed for outreach. In addition, we should all develop a love for God and a confidence in His word that motivates us to witness to others in our daily lives.
2) DISCIPLESHIP- Galatians 6:6
After receiving Christ as personal Savior, our desire is to see new believers continue to grow in their relationship with the Lord. We want to immediately seek to involve them in meaningful personal relationships with other believers, instructing them in biblical truth.
3) WORSHIP- John 4:23-24
As believers begin to learn more about the God they serve, they should begin to cultivate a passion for worship. As a ministry, we will provide corporate opportunities for worship through songs of praise, prayer, and relevant messages from the Bible.
4) MINISTRY- Hebrews 6:10
In order to grow and properly mature as a believer, one must be actively involved in purposeful ministry. We will be planning ministry activities that will afford us exciting opportunities to serve and reach out to others.
5) FELLOWSHIP- Hebrews 10:24-25
An important part of our ministry is spending time with fellow believers encouraging each other in our daily walk with the Lord. Various activities planned throughout the year will allow us to spend quality time together as brothers and sisters in Christ.
