Spiritual Marker 2
How To Guide Your Child To Follow Christ
Kindergarten - Fourth Grade
Overview: Salvation is the most important step for a person to take in their relationship with God. God made ONE way for us to be “friends” with Him, through His Son, Jesus alone. But how can parents prepare their children to be ready to make this decision and become a fully devoted follower of Christ? This is the question we seek to help parents answer so that their child will be ready to make a decision to trust Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of their life at the Holy Spirit's prompting. When a personal decision to follow Jesus has been made, a lifelong journey begins of being a "spiritual champion," one who love God with all his heart, soul, mind and strength. The public display of that decision is through baptism where one "lets the world know" that he/she is now a follower of Jesus and intends to obey Him and live for Him with his/her whole life. As a church, we want to partner with parents to make sure their child understands that baptism is an outward display of an inward decision to follow Christ.
