Growing in Grace
We are committed to our children growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. We pray that our children will know what they believe and why they believe it. We have developed course of instruction so that before they graduate from high school, they will know what the Bible says, have a proper grasp of Biblical doctrine and understand that there have been those in the past who have struggled and died for the faith. They will also know the will of God for their lives and how to comport themselves as believers as, on one hand, they desire to obey God’s will and, on the other, confess along with the rest of us, what a small beginning we have of this obedience.
Profession of Faith
We thank God for the grace that God gives in Jesus Christ that our children are made desirous of professing their faith publicly in the presence of God and in His holy church and to obtain the privileges of full communion with the people of God. When they do so, they profess that they believe what the Word of God reveals concerning salvation by grace alone, that they accept the promises of God made in their baptism and seek their life, not in themselves, but only in Jesus Christ their Savior. They declare their love for the Lord and their heartfelt desire to live a godly life. Finally, they commit themselves to participation in the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. We all rejoice with them that the God of all grace who has called them into his eternal glory in Christ, shall himself perfect, establish and strengthen them.
