Youth (7th-12th grade) SWAT- Students With A Testimony
1 Corinthians 2:1-2 NIV When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
The first goal of our youth ministry is to see students accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Through the realization that all have sinned and they are in need of a savior.
Romans 3:23 KJV For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 6:23 KJV For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 5:8 KJV But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 10:9-10 KJV That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
The second goal of our Youth Ministry is to train students to stand for Christ. Every student that has accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior has a testimony and our goal is for those students to share it. This is done through discipling our students through bible study on Sunday mornings in sunday school and also in Wednesday night studies. We also have special events such as youth camps and conferences through out the year for the students to grow in their knowledge of Christ.
