As a ministry of First Baptist Church Friona we exist to EXALT the glory of Jesus Christ to the youth of Friona, TX.
As a youth ministry we desire to be GREAT. To be great we must fulfill the great commandment and the great commission!
The Great Commandment
"36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself." (Matt. 22:36-39)
The GREAT Commission
"19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matt. 28:19-20)
