TeenServe is dedicated to communicating to youth the knowledge of a saving relationship with their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, equipping and challenging them to share their faith in Jesus Christ with others.
We accomplish that mission by:
Allowing the Holy Spirit to work through us during summer missions trips. Each participant is involved in morning quiet times, crew devotions and evening programs that challenge them to a deeper walk with Jesus Christ. The work projects provide participants the opportunity to imitate Jesus’ servant attitude while here on earth.
“If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus…” Philippians 2:1-5
When we work together, caring for the problems of others as if they were our problems, we demonstrate Christ’s example of putting others first, and we experience unity. Considering others’ interests as more important than our own links us with Christ, who was a true example of humility.
Statement of Faith
TeenServe is an interdenominational, parachurch ministry, dedicated to standing alongside of the local church, namely pastors, youth leaders and parents, providing mission trips that will challenge participants to grow in their faith and put their faith into action.
- We believe the Bible to be inspired by God and without error, the only authoritative Word of God.
- We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: The Father, The Son – Jesus Christ, and the 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 atoning death through His shed blood and His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His return to this earth in power and glory.
- We believe that all people are born in a sinful condition which blocks salvation, that all people can receive that salvation through faith in the blood atonement of Jesus Christ and that Jesus invites all people to have a personal relationship with Him.
