About us

Alive Youth is the Youth Ministry of Full Gospel Korean Church of Houston which targets 6th grade up to 12th grade. The word Alive is an acrostic for Always Living in View of Eternity. Here at ALIVE youth, we seek to be disciples that follow Jesus Christ and strive to bring His kingdom on Earth sooner. With this in mind, we long to become a church that shows our genuine love to our community, just like Christ did, and we hope to welcome every one of you who desire to be a part of a church that loves others like themselves!

Mission Statement

The mission of FGH youth is to create a loving community that encourages each other to seek His kingdom, while passionately praying and studying the Word of God.

Core Values

Grounding Biblical Foundation- The Bible is inerrant and infallible. It is God’s divine word given, bringing knowledge of the truth that transforms people to be adopted through Christ. The youth has little knowledge of the Bible, through grounding them with the scripture they can stand up for their beliefs when questioned.

Maintaining Relationship with God- Many youth students leave the church after they graduate from high school. Through training the youth in prayer, it allows them to have a personal relationship with God and experience him. Training the youth to constantly be in the presence of God, and search for answers through him, will make them seek the body of Christ even after they graduate from high school. 

United Community through Love- Through having a loving community, not only will the youth be united as one, it will draw other students to church. Many students do not feel loved, authentic love will draw them to the church and eventually to Jesus.

Prayers and Biblical Principles

 

Prayer life is one of the most important fundamental qualities to have as a Christian. The reason we pray is to seek the Lord and ask for His guidance everyday, so we can be victorious and not fall into our sinful desires. Prayer also leads people to become more like God. When we spend time with people we love, we get to know their personalities and become more like them. Prayer works the same -- we spend time with God, we obtain more of His good qualities. The prime example for us is Jesus Christ. He didn’t have to pray or read the scripture, but to be an example for us, he made time in the midst of his busyness to pray and spend time with God (Luke 5:16). If Jesus Christ was constantly in prayer and asking God for guidance, what makes us think that we don’t need to pray to make decisions in our lives? Jesus was victorious because of his prayer life. Prayer makes us understand that we need God’s presence and guidance in our daily lives rather than relying on our own strengths.

Discipleship

Luke 14:27

Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple

 

As the youth strives to be Jesus’ disciples, they need to understand that they have to give up their selfish desires to serve the community and unite it. Through giving up their selfish desires and humbling themselves, they will become more like Jesus and do the will of God by being Jesus’ disciples. 

Unity

1 Peter 3:8

Finally all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.

Colossians 3:14

And about all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

 

The youth group lacks unity and often complains about each other. The group needs the virtue of love and humbleness to take a step towards uniting the family. It is important to be united as one and worship as brothers and sisters to become Jesus’ bride. 

 

Word of God

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of our and spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

 

Only a few students from the youth read the word of God constantly. The word of God is crucial at this stage of their lives, it provides the body with strength to be victorious in their daily struggles in their lives. 

 

Love

Mark 12:30-31

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: you shall love your neighbor as yourself, there is no other commandment greater than these.

 

Love is the most fundamental aspect of being a Christian. The youth needs to understand that love is the first step towards having a successful youth group. They need to understand that they have to love everyone in the youth, not just the people they are close with.
