Equipping Students To Love Well.
“to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” ~Ephesians 4:12-16
Chelsea Creek Student Ministry is designed to be a place for Students to safely SEEK after God together. Many Students assume that the Bible is just a long list of dos and don’ts. But the truth is that Scripture is the story of a loving God bring redemption to a people He loves. Our Goal, however, is to present the full beauty of the Gospel of Grace found in the Cross of Jesus. Students today live under the ever increasing cultural demand of performance. From academic expectations, to athletic demands, to the unceasing pressure to present the image of a perfect life across social media. We want to be a ministry that brings them the good news that you are not valued by your success but instead are loved in your failure. We want to bring the freeing news that God loves you just as you are: broken and confused.
Chelsea Creek Student Ministry is designed to be a place for Students to be challenged to GROW in their walk with God. Just as Paul instructed Timothy to not let anyone look down on him because of his youth, we do not want to think less of our students capabilities. We want to challenge them with tough questions. We long for students to graduate and leave this ministry prepared to navigate the challenging waves of the world with a confident faith.
Chelsea Creek Student Ministry is designed to be a place for Students to serve one another in the church and REACH out and serve others outside the church. To be a child of God is to be a member of His church, no matter what your age. We want to challenge our students to live as the Church; to love and serve one another as the Body and the love and serve the lost world around them.
