Southwestern D6 Family Ministry Journal (Volume 5)





Abstract: A biblical worldview cannot be taught overnight; it takes a lifetime. A biblical worldview is also comprehensive and cannot be limited to a particular aspect of life. Therefore, it is important to teach a biblical worldview at an early age, and it is significant for children to have the opportunities to learn through the interactions and experiences in their daily lives. The Bible calls parents and the church to teach children biblical truth and discipline to cultivate a life of faith. When parents and the church acknowledge the importance and urgency of teaching and leading children to God in their daily lives, they will be more likely to commit themselves to fulfilling their God-given calling. This article focuses on how parents and the church can teach a biblical worldview to the next generation and set forth the building blocks of a solid biblical foundation for children through Bible reading, worship, prayer, service, and celebrating special occasions.
