At Fairview Baptist Church, our vistion for the Children's Ministry is no different than that of the church.
"WE EXIST TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST."
As such, our core values for our Children's Ministry simply model those that we set forth for all disciples of Jesus Christ at Fairview. We desire to be a church that exhibits Gospel Transformation, Loving Community, and Missional Living as described in Acts 2:41-47. This greatly impacts the way we approach our Children's Ministry efforts.
GOSPEL TRANSFORMATION: Because we are a church family that focuses on heart transformation and character growth by applying the gospel to all of life, we avoid heaping behavioral modification on the young souls in our care. Rather, we seek to put Christ and His gospel at the center of everything we do in Children's Ministry at Fairview.
LOVING COMMUNITY: Because we are a church family that loves one another in a way that reflects the power of the gospel, we hope to lovingly partner with parents in bringing up a generation of culture-shaping children, rather than children who are shaped by culture.
MISSIONAL LIVING: Because we are a church family that defines our lives by mission in all that we do both here and worldwide, we aspire to see a Children's Ministry that is Kingdom-expanding, and not simply ministry-building.
