Teen and Children’s Ministries “But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14At Open Door Baptist Church, we believe that young people are a priority. We believe that they need to be spiritually strong, grounded in the Word, and have a personal relationship with Jesus. We also work hard to help create or restore close family relationships. The teachers and workers encourage our faithful kids and teens to reach out to others with the Gospel and to serve in our church in many capacities.
