Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

Religious Education in True Jesus Church

Children are a heritage and blessing from the Lord and He seeks godly offspring from us (Ps 127:3; Mal 2:15; 3 Jn 1:4). It is our duty to teach future generations about the existence of God and His relationship with us. Moses set an excellent example when he said: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart” (Deut 6:4–6).

Early education brings abundant benefits to a student. As recorded in Scripture, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov 22:6).

The purposes of religious education are to:

  1. Impart spiritual knowledge to the students, and build up a pure faith within them (2 Tim 3:15; Col 3:16).
  2. Guide students toward Christ-like behavior, and teach them to live a Christian way of life (Prov 22:6; Mt 5:14–16).
  3. Guide students to pray for the power of the Holy Spirit and to serve in the kingdom of God (Gal 5:22–23; Acts 1:8).
  4. Train students to preach the good news and become effective witnesses with the power of the Holy Spirit and the word of God (2 Tim 4:2; Mk 16:15–18; Mt 24:14)
