A covenantal, biblical and reformed discipleship ministry to youth can be broken down into 4 developmental challenges/stages in the life of our youth: Belonging, Believing, Behaving and Becoming. This episode looks at the first B: belonging.
Because of the teaching of Genesis 17, Acts 2, 1 Corinthians 7 and other passages, we view the children of believers as insiders not outsiders. They are inside the blessing and nurture of the covenant as God says to believers "I will be a God to you and your children." This view of youth will affect how we call them to Christian commitment and involvement in the covenant community of the Church.
