Children can know all about God and say the right things, but that is not enough: each child must undergo a spiritual transformation (Colossians 1:13-14). That transformation results in a new heart, a new nature, a new allegiance and a new master -- and will demonstrate itself in a life of obedience (I John 2:3-4).
Our Children’s Ministry is dedicated to nurturing each child toward the day when he/she will have enough maturity to comprehend his/her sinfulness before God and the need to make a personal commitment to Him. Once that spiritual transformation has occurred, we are committed to the ongoing process of helping students grow in their biblical knowledge and obedience, which will demonstrate itself in increasing Christlike character and conduct.
