Statement of Faith

Purpose

YFBC is dedicated to providing a camp setting where campers learn the importance of Christian daily living and grow in their relationship to God. This is done through chapels, campfires, devotionals, cabin groups and the daily interaction with others. Our camp directly reflects an Anabaptist/Mennonite theology of Christ’s peace and love as central to the gospel.

Mission

Our camp setting exists as another means of proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ to the glory and honor of God. To this end it will provide a context for the campers to discover, develop, learn, and grow.

1. The camp program, through chapels, campfires, devotions and interaction with staff will give campers the opportunity to become follows of Jesus Christ.

2. We will teach the importance of Christian daily living through words and actions.

3. The camp experience will guide the campers to grow in the maturity of their Christian

4. We will achieve these ends through an diverse integrated program with many activities and much interaction between the YFBC team and campers. The program will be solidified through its biblical foundation. To reach the campers, every person of the YFBC team is important. Individuals need to walk in the way of our Lord and set examples of Christian lifestyles. We need to unite as a team and use the dynamic power of God to extend THE KINGDOM. Everyone on the YFBC team is a channel through whom God speaks. God uses everyone who is willing and we will all have different roles.
