Here at Downtown Bixby Church of Christ we have an active Youth Ministry of 20-30 students that constantly seeks to grow closer to one another while growing closer to God. We do not believe that the Youth are our future but rather that our Youth are the here-and-now, just as capable of growth and goodness in the world as anyone else. We seek to empower our Youth to love God, love people, and help people love God.
In the Youth Group we are studying the Sermon on the Mount on Sunday mornings to see how Jesus commands his followers to live a life for God. Then on Wednesday evenings we are studying the concept of a “τέλειος life” seen in the book of James. A life that is made perfect, whole, and complete through Christ.
We believe in training the Youth to minister to one another as well as ministering to the world. We seek to be missionaries in the schools and in the community. We want to be a light to the world, and just as the moon reflects the light of the sun, we seek to reflect the light of Christ into this world.
And he said the them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

The proof is in the pudding, or so the old saying goes. Your response shows what you see, tells others what resonates with your heart. So, let me ask you, “How great is your God?” Should you never you His name in vain or never use his name? I find two eternally great aspects of the God of the bible. First, he restores; He takes broken and rebuilds. Second, he is honest. He only speaks truth. Honestly, what would he say about your actions?
How great is your God? Your actions tell how great you think he is.
