Guiding Your Child Spiritually

Seventh-day Adventists, like other Christians, want their children to know Jesus, to live as Christians and to be saved. It is very important children have a relationship with Jesus. 

Research shows many children apparently graduate from church when they graduate from university.

Why does this happen?

The answer is complex and we need to differentiate between spiritual development and indoctrination. Even though children and young adults can learn a set of rules or memorise doctrinal statements, a living relationship with Jesus, though it includes doctrinal understandings, is much more.
