The intent of HSM is to provides tools that will lead youth in developing a personal relationship with God, teach them to apply His Word to their lives, and encourage them to boldly follow Jesus despite worldly influences.
Who are the founders of HSM?
Bob and Erin Greenfield are seasoned Bible teachers, parents, authors, and founders of Hide and Seek Ministries (HSM). They also host the popular Knowing God Podcast for Kids and have been both students and teachers of Christian discipleship for many years. Bob attended Oral Roberts University and currently works at a Christian college. Erin has a degree in Environmental Science, is a homeschooling mother, and is an English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher.
As a previous speaker, trainer, teacher, and writer for national and international organizations, Erin found herself surrounded by atheists and evolutionists during her previous career. During that time, Bob and Erin began noticing how youth were abandoning their faith after encountering people like the very ones that encircled Erin. Bob and Erin witnessed that these kids knew Bible stories very well but could not give an answer for why they believe, and they lacked their own relationship with the Lord. Thus, with the Lord's leading, HSM was born. The intent of HSM is to provides tools that will lead youth in developing a personal relationship with God, teach them to apply His Word to their lives, and encourage them to boldly follow Jesus despite worldly influences.
What We Believe
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. (1 Thes. 2:13, 2 Tim. 3:15-17)
We believe there is only one God (our Creator) who eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Matt. 28:19, John 10:30, Eph. 4:4-6, Gen. 1:1)
We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, Savior, Healer, and soon coming King that was born a virgin birth and lived a sinless life. We believe in His miracles, atoning death on the cross, resurrection, and His personal return. (Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-4 and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. We are saved by grace through faith and it is the gift of God. Those who choose not to believe will face the judgment of God. (John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Rom. 3:23, 2 Cor. 5:10-11, Eph. 1:7 and 2:8-9)
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, and believe He indwells in every believer. We believe that it is the will of God that we live and walk in the Spirit, moment by moment, and gifts of the Spirit are still active today. (John 3:5-8; Acts 1:8 and 4:31; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:16-18; Ephesians 6:12; Colossians 2:6-10; Romans 12:6–8; 1 Corinthians 12:8–10)
We believe evangelism (proclaiming and sharing the message of salvation) and discipleship (helping followers mature in Christ) is a responsibility as a follower of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Peter 3:15)
Why the name "Hide and Seek"?
Colossians 2:3 says "all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" are hidden in Christ. If you believe in Jesus, God's wisdom and knowledge are not hidden from you, they are hidden FOR you. Wisdom and knowledge are available to all believers ... if they choose to seek it.
