One of the great struggles facing followers of Jesus Christ, especially in high school, is assurance of salvation. Because our relationship with Jesus is spiritual in nature, doubts can creep in at various times. Moreover, assurance of salvation impacts many aspects of life including anxiety/depression, service in God’s Kingdom, and love for the Lord. We believe this is a highly relevant topic for high school students and believe everyone who comes (mature believers, those new to a relationship with Jesus, and unbelievers) will grow through this focus.
