Our whole purpose is to enlighten children with the love and power of God through Jesus Christ.
We believe that God wants the best for His children and that through a faith and knowledge of Him, we can be all that He has called us to be.
We feel that only through Christ can children withstand the temptations and trials that they are being exposed to in these times.
What is The Kids’ Ark Mission?
Our mission is to provide children with a solid biblical foundation on which to base their choices in life.
The Holy Spirit, as the third person of the Trinity, is our counselor, guide, comforter and teacher. Jesus said that when He left, He would send another to be with us forever - the Spirit of truth. God's Spirit communicates with our spirit to give us wisdom and lead us in everything we do and say. We are to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Once we surrender completely to the Holy Spirit, then God is able to do great and mighty things in us and through us. It is through the Holy Spirit that God's power flows.
