We in Couples for Christ Youth believe…
That God is calling everyone to a personal relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.
That this call is not exclusive but shared with all sectors of society, regardless of age, color, nationality, status, and beliefs in life.
That the youth have a very special place in God`s heart, and that they in return have a very deep sense of love for God, and that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is something they desire.
That the youth have a vibrant, energetic, dynamic, and free-spirit nature. Rather than denying this nature and force the youth into a mold that satisfies our own perception of Christianity and holiness, we accept this nature, not curtailing it, but re-channeling, into an active expression and submission and participation to the plan of God.
That the youth realize the need to make decisions in life; but they should also know that as they do, God should always be an inseparable part of these decisions; Knowing also that they are future leaders of the families and societies, we realize that this future depends on how they are molded today as God`s children.
That the youth grow not only from what they receive, but more through what they are able to share with others.
That the youth are responsible as long as they are given the appropriate amount of guidance.
