They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.” Jeremiah 17:8
The mission of Brandywine Valley Baptist Church is to introduce people to Jesus Christ and help them to follow Him. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me.” We are a place where all children are included, valued, and loved as they are introduced to Jesus Christ and trained to follow Him. On any given day, any child attending BVBC should experience god’s love through His people in a safe environment.
By the end of fifth grade, Brandywine KIDS will…
KNOW! Be introduced to Jesus Christ and will be given the opportunity to make a personal decision to follow Him.
GROW! Demonstrate a personal relationship with God and apply biblical truths to life. They will be able to show a solid biblical foundation including…
Memorizing key verses.
Being familiar with Old and New Testament stories, characters, and values.
Understand church doctrine, spiritual disciplines, and sacraments (such as Praying, Tithing, Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper).
Being able to navigate through the Bible.
GO! Understand the importance of experiencing God through worshiping and through serving. Be given the opportunity to worship and serve God on a regular basis.
We value God’s word as the source of truth.
We value age-appropriate interactive biblical teaching.
We value scripture memorization as a way of hiding God’s word in a child’s heart.
We value each child as an individual made in the image of God.
We value all types of learners.
We value a safe place for children: emotionally, physically, spiritually, and socially.
We value relationship building as a means of disciplining each child.
