Our Essentials

relational pursuit of young people

YFC engages young people in authentic Christ-sharing relationships so that 11-19-year-olds can experience the love of Christ. We are committed to pursuing teenagers in their world and will consistently strive to develop authentic, Christ-sharing with middle school and high school students and we do whatever it takes to make that happen. As students come to know the hope and love that God has to offer, our belief is that a teenager’s life will be impacted eternally.

  • Our strategy focuses on practicing the 5 Essentials (Widespread Prayer, Loving Relationships, Faithful Bible Teaching, Collaborative Community Strategy, and Adults Who Empower) through community-embedded ministry sites.

  • We uniquely pursue and engage young people through a balanced combination of the following relational ministry actions to build authentic Christ-sharing relationships: contacting, building times, one on one appointments, club groups, and small groups.

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
