An important milestone in the life of every person is salvation and baptism. For the child growing up in a Christian home and in the context of a local church, a decision point is often reached between the ages of 7 and 11. This decision may also occur later in life. Between Milestone #1 and Milestone #2, we partner with and equip parents to lead their kids toward a personal relationship with Jesus Christ which leads toward salvation. Parents are encouraged to attend a seminar that teaches the biblical truth about salvation and baptism. Parents are equipped and given resources to lead family devotions in their homes where these principles are taught.
To make this milestone steps memorable and special, families can include a Spiritual Birthday celebration which focuses on the child's date of salvation and a family celebration at and following the child's baptism event. Parents are encouraged to invite family, friends, and those who spiritually influence the child.
