God’s Design for faith replication is through the context of the family (Deut. 6; Ps. 78) while the church plays a supportive/equipping role to this endeavor (Eph. 4:12).
Kids need a strong foundation of biblical knowledge in an environment where they can encounter the living God. Children open their hearts to God, learn to discern His voice, have a desire to obey Him, and do so in the power of the Holy Spirit (Phil. 2:13).
Parents and leaders have the opportunity to create “environments” where the Holy Spirit is free to move, teach, and lead (Jn. 14:26).
The Bible is God’s truth for daily living. God’s Word holds instructions and inspiration that guides children to know God and interpret their lives through the lens of His will (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
“The Big God Story” is God’s ENTIRE story. It incorporates all of history, stretching from Genesis to Revelation and beyond. Kids understand that they not only play a part in this incredible story, but are also part of a much larger faith community of past, present, and future believers.
Because it is one story with the emphasis on God’s love and redemption through Jesus (Col. 1:20), not the supporting cast in any given storyline (eg. “God Is Victorious” vs “David and Goliath”).
