HOW TO KNOW FOR SURE
You are only a SINGLE, SINCERE PRAYER OF REPENTANCE away from life forever with Jesus in Heaven (John 3:16) and life more abundanly with Him here on earth.(John 10:10)
Each person has to do this on their own. I had to do this, too. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.(Heb. 11:6)
ADMIT you're a sinner, and fall short of God's perfect glory. Since you're not perfect you can't save yourself from your own sin
We couldn't, either. But, God's Word says you must simply...
BELIEVE with your heart that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. He never sinned, yet He took our punishment for sin, when He died on the cross. Three days later, He rose from the dead.
If you've done A and B, all you need to do in that prayer is...
CHOOSE to CALL on Jesus by faith in Him alone to forgive you of all your sins. He will cleanse you from those sins, and make you new on the inside.

To Youthquake Members and Prospective Members - A Great New Era Awaits
It is with sadness we announce the passing of our founder and director, Sal Varsalone. As Jesus surely said to him, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."
He would not want the glory, so let us remember the great thigns done under his ministry that God provided - the Lord gave us thousands upon thousands of young people won to Christ, Bible quiz victories and other things used to encourage discipleship, and so much more.
Joshua 1:2 records a similar great man of God's passing. "Moses my servant is dead," God tells Joshua. Now go, cross this Jordan..." Verse 9 says: "Be strong and of a good courage, be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee."
This ministry will change, with a focus on getting kids to Camp CHOF with remaining funds. However, don't think of us as the only people who can minister.
You can be part of God’s plan. Yes, even as a youth. How? Read on.
You can get in touch with us to learn how to start prayer and devotion in your school. Even if you’re not in the area, through our e-mail we can guide you.
Though we no longer have our radio show, you can still e-mail us with questions. We’ve had visitors from other countries, we know God can use anyone, anywhere, just as He hears us and we can pray anywhere, anytime, about anything.
Remember that prayer changes things. It’s how God sustained us for 39 years. That plus Godly living will attracts people to you. You can read the Bible yourself and let the Lord show you how to minister to others. Just as our Lord Jesus Christ came to minister and to give His life, to pay the debt we could not pay for our sins, and to rise from the dead.
You may ask, “How can I minister?”
Have you called on Jesus Christ by faith to forgive you and save you from your sins? He lives in everyone who is saved through the Holy Spirit. He must be placed at the center of every ministry endeavor. If not, you can do so right now, the simple plan of salvation is listed at the left and expand on further on our R U Saved page.
You can start a Christian club in your school as a member, or as a student leader of one of these clubs. Young people can also have a cell group meet – we can help set it up with your parents or guardian – at your house which will encourage prayer and which will pray for the needs of others, among other things.
Do you have less skill, less experience than we do? Yes, but you can draw from our experience. Remember the words of 1 Peter 3:15 when we are urged to be ready for those tough questions people ask? You can always call one of us, and you can always be sure that the Spirit will teach you what to say, even if that is to wait while you find an answer and then get back to that person – or have one of us call them.
You may say, “I have not lived for Him.” Then do so by recommitting your life today. The Lord has called you for such a time as this, so others may see an example of Jesus Christ. You are needed. Use the fruits of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 to help. You need to represent Christ to the hurting, the weak, the one who does not have friends, who needs a helping hand or a gentle nudge in the right direction. You also are needed to be a representative of Christ to the bully, the popular, the one who seems to have it all, to help them see that this sinful world only has temporary pleasure. However, what Jesus has to offer will last forever, just like He told the woman at the well (John 4). For we will be known by our love, and this community can only be won to Christ through our prayer and our letting Him use us for His glory.
We can show a Godly example to those who need Him by our actions. He can use you young people to go out and reach your community and your school for Him. You can be an example of Jesus Christ for others to follow.
So, please pray, read your Bible, and know He has not left you alone. God is faithful, and will bring us a van in His time. But, He has called you *now* to be His disciples, to walk worthy of His calling, to be used of Him to bring others to the Lord. Would you know how to lead someone to Christ? (ABC - Admit, Believe, Choose/call is a good way to remember, for instance.) Can you lead someone in that single, sincere prayer of repentance that they are away from eternal life? I know of people who have led friends to Christ as pre-teens, so it can be done, because it’s God doing the work. You just need to pray and let the Spirit guide you, while studying to know the material yourself, so you can live for God and be approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.
So, pray and be active as followers of Jesus Christ. You are the Youthquake Ministry in action. Don't forget to tell your friends about our website.
