Who We Are:
STRIVE Student Ministries and First Baptist Church of Weston are committed to love, nurture, inspire, and equip our youth to be faithful, lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ who STRIVE to reach out to the community and beyond.
Our hope is to equip students to serve as fully devoted disciples of Christ so that they STRIVE to live their lives in such a way that they:
Submit to God (Matthew 16:24-26)
Take part in Community (Matthew 5:13-16)
Respect One Another (Matthew 7:12; Romans 12:9-21)
Invite Others Along (John 1:14)
Value the Church (1 Corinthians 12:12-31)
Experience God (Romans 12:2; 1 Corinthians 2:9-10)
Love: We show compassion, concern and care for others because we first have been loved by Christ.
Welcome: We seek to live as a unique community of faith in which everyone feels welcome.
Excitement: We strive to create an environment that attracts youth and families, both members and non-members.
Spiritually: We base our programming on the foundation of a common faith in Jesus Christ.
Leadership: We affirm that all baptized believers are gifted by the Holy Spirit and called to serve within the body of Christ.
Growth: We endeavor to be lifelong disciples who are continually growing in our faith.
Mission: We express our faith in specific, tangible acts of service, particularly to those in need.
