Philosophy of Falls Creek Programming
Falls Creek Youth Camp exists to support local church efforts to reach lost students in their communities and to raise up a generation of teenagers with an authentic walk with God and who actively share their faith.
The yearly theme is selected from a three-year cycle emphasizing root issues in the Christian student’s journey:
(1) Knowing the Character and Nature of God
(2) Spiritual Disciplines
The 2013 focus is Evangelism. We will focus on our thirst for God. Our theme verse is John 4:13-14
The morning schedule is designed for believers. We hope to challenge them to walk with God, share their faith in Christ more consistently, and to know God more deeply through relevant worship and creative Biblical teaching. The afternoon schedule is designed to involve students in a myriad of activities which engage them physically, socially, and spiritually. These activities are designed to help students interact with one another in both fun and contemplative ways. During the evening tabernacle services on Tuesday through Friday nights, the gospel will be clearly presented and students will be provided with an opportunity to respond.
Throughout the week of camp, there is a high priority on Scripture, worship, relationships within the local church, and opportunities for students and sponsors to sharpen their skills and prepare to consistently serve God after camp. Falls Creek is a camp designed to reach and equip the students of Oklahoma, but it is open to churches across the nation who share the Biblical values of the churches of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma.
Falls Creek Youth Camp is supported by Oklahoma Baptists’ gifts through the Cooperative Program. Thank you Oklahoma Baptists for challenging students to know Christ by giving to the Cooperative Program.
