Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. ~Proverb 22:6
In hip hop/black culture, a cipher is when a group of rappers get together in a circle and each person takes a turn demonstrating their lyrical skills. The cipher is very encouraging of one another as they are clapping, signifying and being verbally demonstrative of their support in the background, spurring on whoever is taking their turn. So, OUR cipher is similar in that we are a tight-knit circle of young people who get together to learn, to express, share and even testify to the goodness of God in their lives, their knowledge of Him and their desire to learn more about Him. That’s what we do in our CYPHER. The acronym is merely word association, so it’s less about that than it is about the symbolism of a cipher and how we are taking that term and using it for our purposes.
Our mission is to bring young people (kindergarten thru 12th grades) together who are seeking a redemptive relationship with God, and those who are already saved to live a better life for Him. This is done by reading and understanding God’s word, sharing God’s word and works in an environment with other Christian young people, and being immersed in a safe and Christian environment.
Our Statement of Faith
We believe that there is one God made up of three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We also believe that there is only one way to salvation, and that is through Jesus Christ, who died for our sins.
