YCS Prayer and Creed

YCS Prayer 
Dear Jesus, 
Please fill us with your spirit of love. 
Help us to see the world as you do, 
to judge with your heart, and to act with 
the strength and courage you have shown us
as we work to transform our world
Amen
 
 
 
YCS Creed
The YCS Creed outlines the core values of the movement, and what we as students believe in as our mission. It articulates our faith in a way that can be as the basis of a prayer at the beginning or the end of meetings.

As Young Christian Students we believe in God. We believe that God created the universe and that we, as part of God’s creation, are invited to help complete God’s plan. We believe that the earth has been entrusted to us, to care for, to nurture and to respect. People, as God’s creation, have a dignity and worth beyond measure, and deserve to be treated with respect and understanding. We believe the Holy Spirit empowers us to live active lives following the example of Jesus Christ.  We do this through communicating our thoughts, opinions and emotions and accepting and loving each other unconditionally. We believe that our schools should promote these values through encouraging students to form and question their own opinions and beliefs, and treating each student as a worthwhile individual who has unique needs and talents. Our schools should educate for life. And we believe that Jesus calls us to live through actions, not just words.
Amen.
