SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH KIDS

Within a children’s ministry, we have incredible opportunities to share the Gospel with kids and encourage them to follow Jesus. We completely understand that it can be tricky to know exactly how to talk about salvation and baptism with your kids. We would encourage you to learn to share your faith in simple terms. Here’s a basic overview of the Gospel:

  1. God created this world, it was originally perfect.

  2. We messed up and let sin (our mistakes) into our lives and separated us from God.

  3. God loved us so much he sent his Son, Jesus to become a man to make things right.

  4. Jesus, though being perfect, died for our sins on the cross.

  5. Three days later Jesus raised from the dead.

  6. We could have new life with him forever by believing in Him and trusting Jesus to lead our lives.

ABC'S TO BECOMING A FOLLOWER OF JESUS

    A   Agree that we messed up and Repent by turning from our sins.
    B   Believe that Jesus died and resurrected to forgive our sins.
    C   Choose to follow Jesus and let him lead our lives.

SALVATION PRAYER
