Christian Parenting Tips & Biblical Parenting Principles | First Redeemer Church

Raising godly children and Christian parenting is no easy task in modern culture. The parenting decisions you make to spend time with your kids will fill your children’s hearts with life and show them unconditional love. On this page we will share some wonderful posts, to help you in raising godly children as a Christian parent. Young people don’t need a perfect parent.  In fact, broken people can still help kids learn about God’s love.  Christ-like parenting is not only for seasoned parents. God created you to show his love to your children.  

We hope to share parenting tips, and great resources to help you raise godly children in a godly way.  God’s word for Christian parents is filled with strategies to help kids learn how much God loves them.  Parenting decisions aren’t easy, but we can offer some bible verses that bring insight into biblical parenting.
Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

More than ever before we are challenged to isolate from one another.  Non-stop digital noise, and busy lives drive us to complete the day like a box we have to check.  How often do we stop, and take the moment to be mindful about all that is in front of us.  First Redeemer Church is where families come together.  It’s a place where every age can find connection and inspiration.
Why, then, do we sometimes fail to set a course in parenting?

Why do we worry about the minor issues, and forget about the big ones? How do we become so wrapped up in the insignificant issues and forget about the foundational ones?

#1: Love and Value Your Children

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Ephesians 6:4, ESV

Nothing exasperates a child faster than feeling unloved.

#2: Point Children to Scripture

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17, ESV

The best parenting advice I have received is to use Scripture when praising, when correcting, when teaching, when rebuking. We use Scripture in every instance of parenting.

#3: Teach Children the Lord’s Character

Come, O children, listen to me;

I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

Psalm 34:11, ESV

We must raise our children to fear the Lord. They must understand His character.

#4: Protect Children’s Innocence

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.

1 Timothy 4:12, ESV

It’s easy, in this culture of idolatry, to believe that the status quo is perfectly acceptable.
We frequently hear parents state, “I was raised with that (whatever influence is in question), and I turned out fine.”

When it comes to the things we allow in our children’s minds, though, what if we don’t have the right to steal our children’s innocence? What if we are responsible for sheltering their purity until they are old enough to choose for themselves? What if the movies, music, and books we expose

#5: Teach to Children’s Gifting

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.

1 Corinthians 12:4-6, ESV

Put simply, God created each of our children to have unique talents, gifts, and abilities–he has a purpose for each child. It is our job, as parents, to prayerfully raise our children toward their individual bent. We must strive to help our children find their unique purpose.

#6: Practice What You Preach

He did all things as Joash his father had done.

2 Kings 14:3b, ESV

In the end, children grow to be adults. They choose their own path.

Still, the truth remains that children tend to be perfect mirrors of their parents. We love to tell our kids that we have eyes in the back of our heads. The truth is, we don’t–our kids do. They see everything we do.
