Partnership with Parents
We believe God has designed parents with the primary responsibility for the spiritual nurture of their children. The church should support the parents’ role in raising their children in the instruction and admonition of the Lord. The church ministers alongside the parents, intentionally seeking ways to equip and sharpen the parents in discipling their children. Thus, we structure the curricula and design ministry roles that enable Christ-centered parenting to flourish both inside and outside the local gathering.
(Deuteronomy 6:4-9, 20-25, Psalm 78:5-6, Proverbs 1:8-9)
Deep Spiritual Truths
We believe God has designed children with the capabilities to both pursue and grasp the deep truths of Scripture. Our task in building these truths into their lives should begin even at a very young age. We commit to present to them difficult doctrines and profound truths that will help them understand the character of God. Our hope is that God will use this biblical foundation to transform their life and shape their worldview, so that they will live in a manner that brings glory to God through Jesus Christ.
(Deuteronomy 6:7, Acts 20:27-28, Colossians 1:27-28, and 2 Timothy 3:15).
