We believe the Bible clearly teaches that the family unit - especially parents - is the primary source and center for discipleship in the lives of children and teens. We also believe the Bible is equally clear that it is the role of the Church body to come alongside parents in this pursuit and help them in the disciple-making process.
While the discipling looks different whether your child is a newborn in the Nursery or a 12th grader preparing to graduate, the mission we cultivate in our next generation is the same at every age: to bring glory to God by believing in Jesus, belonging to His family, becoming His disciple, and building His kingdom.
Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
