Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
We believe that it is our responsibility as servants to train a generation of children and youth in the way of Jesus, so they will remain faithful followers when they are old.
The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free… Luke 4:18 (NIV)
We believe the gospel of Jesus is both spiritual & social. There is a love for God, and the way we reflect that love is through our love for others and through the message of liberation we give to others. We believe that it is this gospel that we must teach the generations that we serve.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 (NIV)
We wish to affirm the identity of children and youth as followers of Christ by convincing them of the importance of not compromising or conforming their identity.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Mark 12:30-31 (NIV)
We wish to bring children and youth to a place where they understand the importance of loving God wholeheartedly and loving people holistically.
