In a world that seems busier than ever, it’s difficult to stay focused on what’s most important to us. Clearly, we all want the best for our children. We all agree that values are important.
We at Key Bible Clubs believe our role is to help parents provide moral and spiritual guidance in their children’s lives. We feel that an understanding of the Bible and its principles help children in their character development.
At Key Bible Clubs we share Biblical values that we believe will help give children a solid foundation for making wise choices that will last a lifetime. It’s more than do’s and don’ts. They learn to value themselves, to be sensitive to others and to appreciate the world around them. Most importantly, they come to understand how much God loves them.
At Key Bible Clubs we ask all our staff to sign a values statement each year. The values we are committed to, as we work with your children are as follows.
- … a God honouring ministry. We seek to honour God in our curriculum, programs, and all other aspects of our ministry. As we honour God, we believe He will honour our work by fostering Christ-centred faith in the children we serve (I Corinthians 10:31).
- … the Bible as God’s inspired Word, His authority for all aspects of life. The primary goal of our curriculum is to help children use, understand and apply the Bible to daily life (I Timothy 3:16).
- … children as created in God’s image. We treat every individual with dignity, respect and equality regardless of race, creed, age or gender (Matthew 19:14).
- … an educational environment. We will use creative methods that recognize the developmental stages of children, their culture and the need to explore their issues and relate Biblical principles to them. We believe a children’s ministry should be safe, relational and fun. A loving and affirming environment is essential for spiritual growth to occur in the life of the student (Philippians 2:2-4).
- … personal rights. Recognizing the right of every person to decide for themselves, and that no true change will take place apart from the work of God, we do not coerce children into making decisions (John 6:65).
- … personal integrity. Biblical character must be evident and seen in the life of each leader (I Corinthians 11:1).
- … personal relationships as God’s created design. We recognize the importance of children building healthy relationships with adults, peers, and children of other ages in the context of the family, local church and community, all the while recognizing that parents have the primary responsibility for raising and educating their children (Galatians 5:14, Deuteronomy 6:4-9).
- … our club personnel. We will listen to our club personnel so we can provide them with the resources and training needed to increase their potential impact (II Timothy 2:2).
- … stewardship. We recognize that all we have is from God. We are responsible to manage wisely those resources so that we honour God with their use (Titus 1:7).
