The mission of Agape Youth is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ, through word and deed, to children who have been affected by the incarceration of a parent. Staff and volunteers each bring with them a diversity of Christian experience, but we are unified that Agape Youth Camp is not to be used as a platform to forward our secondary theological persuasions, but to focus on the simplicity and clarity of the Gospel.
All staff and volunteers hold these simple fundamentals in common:
The Bible: We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and is the trustworthy and infallible authority in all matters of doctrine, faith and conduct.
The Trinity: We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of all things, eternally existing in three distinct persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ: We believe Jesus Christ to be God’s only begotten Son, eternal, conceived by the Holy Spirit with two inseparable natures, one human one divine. He alone is the savior of the world, having lived in sinless perfection, his death was a substitutionary atonement for sin providing forgiveness to all who believe.
Humanity: We believe God created man in His image, without sin. Adam sinned, and in him we are all born into sin, both in nature and by deed. All humanity stands in need of God’s mercy and grace in order to be reconciled to Him.
Salvation: We believe that justification (salvation) is provided wholly by God’s grace and is received solely through faith in Jesus Christ not a result of any good works. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer at the moment of salvation, He is committed to our sanctification and He seals us until the day of our glorification. Good works are the fruit of salvation and will be evidenced in the life of the believer.
