The NICF Youth Ministry (Youth Ablaze) creates a fellowship base for all youth around Nanjing. Apostle Paul said, “the days are evil”
and indeed we are witnessing it every day. The world is fast changing; new ideas, inventions, styles and information are continuously flooding our society every day. People are being bombarded and brains put to work 24/7. Everyone is affected, especially the youth! The Lord encourages us to stand firm to the end for we shall see Him face to face. We fellowship and encourage each other with the message of truth, hope, and prosperity, compared to the lies sold everyday by the devil. Through different activities we need to spread that message to build a strong foundation. We believe that the Word of God is the principal instruction material for success in spiritual, moral, social, academic and professional life. Therefore, a systematic study of the scriptures is of utmost importance. We also believe that the paramount evidence of serving God is serving people and that must be done with excellence. Jesus did not only grow in favor with God but he did so with people as well. Therefore, we encourage young people not only to be good and act well in church, but to have influence and impact lives in their communities as well. This includes homes, schools, dormitories, sports grounds, shopping malls, night markets etc. We give all the glory to God for this growth and pray that He will continue transforming lives as we endeavor to give Him first place in all we do.
YOUTH ABLAZE VISION
young people to the great commission; encourage
them to have a heart after God and be effective in their communities; promote healthy relationships, harness academic and artistic creativity, avail ‘guiltless’ entertainment and restore confidence in serving God.
- To equip. We believe that the word of God is the principal instruction material for success in everything.
2 Tim 3:14-17 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
- To inspire quality service.
Jesus told Martha that Mary has chosen the better thing [Luke 10:42], by sitting at His feet and listening to Him. When the right time came, Mary understood that it was necessary to anoint Jesus’ body with a very expensive perfume [John 12:3]. Because she had listened to Him first, she understood the right time to serve and how to serve. Quality service is inspired by sitting with Jesus first and not worrying about anything else.
