Back in 2016, a group of third through fifth graders were in KidsMin and the teacher asked a question. Does every person go to heaven no matter what? More than half of the room all in unison said yes. In that moment, we realized we had to talk through what the Bible teaches about salvation, that belief in Jesus is the only way that someone goes to heaven. We had a lack of common language. We teach Bible stories, but there aren’t common phrases and language tying those different Bible stories together teaching kids the core truths of Christianity.
In 2017, through a partnership with another church, through talk with the Kids Ministry leadership team and Kids Ministry staff, we came up with the Truth Pillars. Our hope is that through the repetition of hearing these truths at church and at home, our kids will hear these phrases multiple times throughout the year, year after year, over and over and over again. Our desire is that this partnership between church and home will solidify in the heads and hearts of our kids these 12 truths and their accompanying scripture.
For every Truth Pillar, there's a song to support it. The chorus contains the words of the Truth Pillar and the ‘verses’ have Bible verses which support that main idea.
Truth Pillar 1: The Bible is clear to say…Jesus is the only way
I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through me. John 14:6
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Acts 2:21
Let us know if you have any questions and share your stories of how God is using these truths in your home. We’re excited to see all that God does here in our church to solidy Truth in our kids’ hearts!
