What is 412teens.org?

412teens.org is dedicated to encouraging teens and sharing pearls of biblical truth in a sea of spiritual sludge. We're an outreach of Got Questions Ministries. Our mission is to glorify God by providing biblical, applicable, compassionate, and timely answers to spiritually-related questions about topics important to young believers.

What does the "412" in your name stand for?

1 Timothy 4:12

The "412" stands for 1 Timothy 4:12, which is "Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." Just because you're young, that doesn't mean you have nothing to offer this world. Teens can still be incredible witnesses to God's amazing grace and love. We believe that teens have awesome insights and perspectives on this universe that adults could really benefit from.
