Day in the Life

General School Mission

"All people are born spiritually dead, capable only of rejecting God and His salvation.
“. . . for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God . . .”
Even children and infants are conceived and born in sin.
“Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.”
God in His great love sent His Son, Jesus Christ, as the full payment for the sins of all people.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The Bible tells everyone, even children, the good news of their salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
“. . . from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.”
Fathers (and thus families) have the first responsibility for bringing children to God.
“Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
God established the public ministry (pastors, teachers, etc.) in order to spread the Gospel in many ways, among them assisting parents in bringing their children to the Lord.
“It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up . . .”
It is God’s mission for His church that they make disciples by baptizing and teaching.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
The Word of God is the ultimate tool in the teaching of children.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness . . .”
Christian education benefits children even to their old age.
“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
