What message today’s children need?

1. They need to hear about God

God is the source of salvation. Children need to know who God is and what He does.
Children will never understand their responsibility for sin without first having a clear picture of God.

It is why we teach:
  • God made you (Acts 17, 23-29): you are responsible before Him.
  • God has spoken to you through the Bible (1 Cor. 3-4): you are responsible to listen to Him.
  • God is holy and just (Acts 17, 31): He must judge you.
  • God is good and He loves you (John 3, 16): He made salvation possible for you.

2. They need to hear about sin

Teaching about sin shows the need for salvation. Sin and consequences for sin have to be explained thoroughly and seriously. It is why we teach:
  • Your sin is against God (Psalm 51, 4).
  • You are a sinner by nature (Eph. 2, 3) and by practice (Rom.3, 23).
  • Because of sin, you deserve punishment from God (Rom.1, 18).

3. They need to hear about Jesus Christ

Teaching about Jesus Christ shows children the only way of salvation. Children need to know who Jesus Christ is and what He has done. It is why we teach:
  • Jesus Christ is God the Son, the only Saviour (Acts 9, 20).
  • He died for you (Acts 2, 23.36.38).
  • He rose again for you (Acts 2, 24-32).
  • He went back to Heaven for you (Acts 2, 23-32).
 
4. They need to hear about repentance and faith

Calling children to Christ is an essential part of the Gospel (John 6, 37; John 1, 12). It is why we teach:
  • Jesus Christ invites you to come to Him (Matth. 11, 28).
  • You need to turn from your sin to God (Acts 2, 38; 20, 21).
  • You need to trust Jesus Christ and submit totally to Him (Acts 16, 31; 20, 21).

Repentance and faith involve a total response to  the call of Christ: of mind, heart and will (Rom. 6, 17).

'A job is at your choice; a ministry is at Christ's call. In a job you expect to receive; in a ministry you expect to give. In a job you give something to get something; in a ministry you return something that has already been given to you. A job depends on your abilities; a ministry depends on your availability to God. A job done well brings you praise; a ministry done well brings honour to Christ.'

This ministry is to bring honour to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
