WHEN TEENS FIND CHURCH AND THE THINGS OF GOD BORING!
One of the great enemies the Church faces in this generation is teenage boredom with the things of God. This is a serious problem among today's youth and YouthBytes goes on the offence in helping God's people fight this. YouthBytes is a DVD resource that is designed to give anyone working with young people a powerful new tool to engage the faith of teens and young adults.
A POWERFUL DISCIPLESHIP TOOL
Although we produce this dynamic tool, it is not designed to stand alone. Its real effectiveness is enhanced in the hands of someone like a youth leader, a parent, a teacher, a homeschool instructor or a pastor. When combined with the note guides, it becomes an amazing vehicle to disciple young people. Read some of our many reviews to get some honest feedback on the effectiveness of the program. YouthBytes uses some extreme measures to confront the needs of teenagers in this fast paced, high tech world we live in. We never change the message but we do believe in changing the methods that we use to communicate timeless truths about Jesus Christ and about living a life of faith.

Our Doctrine - In addition to believing in the statement of faith contained in the Apostles Creed, we also believe the following:
1 We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
2 We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and in His bodily resurrection.
3 We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God.
4 We believe in salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
5 We believe in the provision of bodily healing in the atoning work of Jesus our Saviour on the cross of Calvary.
6 We believe in the Holy Spirit and in His role as the third person of the Trinity to guide, direct, comfort, and help believers become more like Christ. We believe His gifts and fruits are necessary for believers today.
7 We believe in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the saved unto eternal life, living eternally in the presence of God, and the lost unto eternal damnation without further opportunity of repentance.
