3 John 1:4 – I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. (KJV)
Children are a blessing from God and are a very important to the First Missionary Baptist Church of Biloxi family. We value children and their relationship with God and seek to provide a welcoming and nurturing community where all children can grow spiritually. From the youngest to the oldest we seek to encourage children to know and love the Lord through the teaching of His Word and the influence of godly role models who demonstrate His love and acceptance. In our children’s ministries we make it our aim to lay a foundation upon which God-centered lives are built. We teach our children through age-appropriate lessons not only to know, but to trust the Lord – to not only receive from Him, but to give their lives in grateful worship and service.
