The Youth Program in a New Testament Baptist Church should be designed to prepare our young people to perpetuate old-fashioned Biblical Christianity to the next generation while helping to train the future leaders and faithful members of our churches.
“That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.” Psalms78:6-8 KJV
So many churches today are seeking to merely entertain the souls of their youth without strengthening their spirits so they can be “…stedfast with God.”
We desire our youth to be pointed toward solid Bible principles that honor God. We do not confuse our youth by using every new version of a bible that hits the market.
I Corinthians 14:33 KJV states clearly, “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
If this generation of youth uses and is taught from false and perverted versions of a bible, wouldn’t it be wise to stop and seriously consider what will be produced in the lives of “…their children…? Our young need the solid benchmark of a perfect and pure Word of God or they will have no true reference point for their futures!
We have designed a Biblical Youth Program that will prepare the young people to set their priorities of life toward being mature and faithful serving members of their local church now while in their youth, not just in their adult lives..
