Diocese of Quincy Youth and College Ministry
The Youth Department of the Diocese of Quincy is dedicated to the Spiritual formation of and evangelism to young people inside and outside of the diocese.
We hold as our core values those stated by the Anglican Communion Network following its May, 2007 Youth Summit:
As Jesus Christ stated, he is "The Way, The Truth and The Life" and salvation comes only through Him. (John 14:6)
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the revealed Word of God and therefore completely reliable, trustworthy and authoritative and the foundation of faith, holding all things necessary for salvation. (2 Timothy 3:16)
The three historic creeds being: Apostles', Nicene and Athanasian, contain the necessary summary of the faith and no teaching contrary to them is acceptable. (1Cor. 3:11, John 16:13)
Worship of God and the administration of the Sacraments of Baptism and the Holy Eucharist as instituted by Christ and passed down through apostolic succession. (Plasm 96:8-9; Matt 28:17; 1 Cor. 11:23)
Recognizing the uniqueness of the church as Christ's instrument in the world, it is a Biblical madate to disciple youth, teaching them to obey everything commanded by Jeuss, including their mission and ministry in the world. (Matt. 28: 18-20)
