People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
We also believe that children need to be nurtured to grow in physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
King James Version (KJV)
40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
- Mentally through education to children’s minds.
- Physically through compassion to have children’s basic needs met.
- Spiritually through evangelism to reach children for Christ.
- Socially through discipleship to strengthen children’s faith.
Do you love God
Songs for little children:
Jesus loves me this I know
Read your Bible pray every day
If you are Happy and you know it clap your hands.

This holistic approach is biblical and is modeled in the life of Jesus. Luke 2:52 reveals how Jesus’ life was shaped in a holistic fashion. Jesus grew in wisdom (mentally) and stature (physically), and in favor with God (spiritually) and men (socially).
