We exist to empower, equip and encourage young people in the Alcoa community to pursue a life dedicated to following Jesus, sharing the love of Christ with all people and serving as leaders among their peers and in their community.
All activities, events and content in programs will be based on the Gospel and how Jesus calls us to love and serve all people.
This does not exclude any students or families who do not believe in the Gospel or identify with Christian values.
All who join our program are seen, valued and treated with kindness, respect and generosity despite differences in culture, ethnicity, gender, or socio-economic status.
This does not mean that we will deny any differences in opinions or questions, but that we will always point people back to the love of Jesus and promote a culture of acceptance.
Our focus is on building deep and meaningful relationships with young people and their families that extend past their time in our program.
We do not prioritize numbers and soulless programs over students and families. Deep relationships with the students involved are our main and immediate priority.
We are committed to walking through life with students helping guide and support them in what God has called them to, while mirroring the love of Jesus in all we do.
This does not mean that we force anyone to believe or participate in anything they are not comfortable with. We are not forcing the Gospel on students or families, but will be a ministry that exists to love and serve all people as Jesus taught.
Focused on serving our neighborhoods in Alcoa, our country as a whole and the world around us. Participating in community service projects along with local and foreign mission work.
We are not creating menial work for each student to participate in. We want to encourage students to serve others and spread the love of Jesus through projects they are passionate about and have vested interest in.
Our Statement of Faith
All Are Worthy agrees with the Apostles’ Creed as our primary statement of faith:
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church, **
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
**or “universal church”
