What Mission Bible Class Values Most

Faithfulness to God

  • God is sovereign and His Word is essential for maturing faith.
  • Faith development is a life-long event. Developing a healthy relationship with God in childhood dramatically increases the likelihood of a balanced and life-long faith.

Respect for Children and Families

  • Childhood should be celebrated and appreciated.  Children are valuable to God in their own right and are not simply evangelistic tools to reach adults.
  • God is already at work in the hearts of children within their own families and communities. We are joining Him in His mission when we spiritually nurture children.
  • The parent/child bond should be respected and parents encouraged to be the natural and first models of a Christian environment. The church and Christians provide a partnership in training but do not replace the responsibility of parents to pass on the faith to their own children.

Acknowledgement of Culture and Community

  • God transcends culture and the teaching of children should be contextual to local people, environment and available physical resources.
  • Caring for, teaching and ministering to children should be conducted in a natural and positive manner so that providers themselves mature in their own faith and character through the process.
