New Apostolic Church offers care for emerging youth.
When a child reaches the age of 12, a special development begins to take place. With maturity comes the responsibility to understand what one's faith means and a deeper investigation into what one believes in order that one can come to profess and confirm one's faith. Confirmation Instruction turns the focus on confirming one's faith after reflection, understanding and ultimately conviction to remain faithful and walk in the ways of Jesus Christ. After this instruction, children can choose to confirm their faith in a special divine service before God and the congregation. In this confirmation, adolescents make a vow of faithfulness and take on the full responsibility for their life of faith. Children move gently into spiritual adulthood where their appreciation of their faith increases along with their commitment to living a life according to the example of Jesus Christ.
