Discipline yourself for the purposes of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also the life to come

(1 Timothy 4:7-8)

As mentioned on the ministry's website "Your Word Is Truth is a 40-week study for youth on seeing all of life through the Truth of Scripture. The goal of this study is that, through the work of the Holy Spirit, the authoritative Truth of the Bible might be understood and embraced so students may see and interpret all of life through the Truth of Scripture. The first nine lessons establish the Bible as God's absolute, objective, universal, and unchanging Truth; the sinful heart™s rejection of Truth; and the necessity of the Gospel's transforming work which alone enables sinners to come to know and embrace the Truth through trusting in Jesus. The rest of the curriculum then asks the question: How now should we live? by exploring a variety of contemporary topics in order to help the students understand and apply Biblical Truth to all areas of life."
