Some things to remember about :


Children and Salvation

1. Ask open-ended questions when talking with children about salvation.


2. Remain conversational.


3. Don’t jump to conclusions.


4. Avoid symbolic language.


5. Make the distinction between baptism and becoming a Christian.


6. Give time to process and give time for reflection.


7. Every child deserves personal counseling.


8. Involve parents.


When presenting the gospel in group settings:


  • Determine the ages to be involved.


  • Keep it brief.


  • Use a translation that children are familiar with.


  • Consider using a response card that lowers pressure.


  • Have a follow-up plan.


  • Train counselors: make sure they have a plan to follow (ABCs of Salvation); make sure they talk about assurance.
