I love this site so much! I know God has gifted me with a unique way of relating to children and a passion of helping every child realize that they are able capable of having a strong, real, intimate relationship with the Lord their whole lives. But I get bogged down by the "job" part of ministry sometimes... how to run it, how to organize it, how to staff it, how to evaluate what is really making the difference and recognizing what's not... and am I doing the best I know how to do? Then I get on Kidology, read the forums and feel so encouraged to learn from such seasoned people that share the same passion. I truly mean it from the bottom of my heart.  I respect the work you are doing, the knowledge that you share and the respect that is given even when all don't agree.

WHAT IS 10-7-3-1?

Is this some kind of code? Yes! It is how to “Crack the Code of Life.” Simply put, it represents four things every Christian should know to help them as they live. The code represents four basic understandings about life that you can pass along to the children in your children’s ministry and they, in turn, can use 10-7-3-1 to share Jesus with their friends. (They'll love the 'tear and share' Gospel tract.)

Originally created by David Gainous and developed as a children's ministry strategy and theme by Stanley Mearse, 10-7-3-1 has been used to lead many people to God.

The four foundational elements every Christian should know can be easily remembered using these four representational numbers: 10-7-3-1.

 The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17)
 The Days of Creation (Genesis 1 & 2)
 Letters of Salvation: A - B - C
 Know the One True God and worship Him Only (I John 1:1-5)

The Three Letter's of Salvation:

          A - Admit you are a sinner
                (Romans 3:23)

          B - Believe Jesus died on the cross for your sins and rose again.
                (Romans 10:9)

          C - Confess your salvation in Him to others.
                (Romans 10:10)
