Here are the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS of Glow in the Dark SPORTS (GITDS):
> Do you have to be a "Christian" or a religious person to be a part of GITDS? -ABSOLUTELY NOT! – You were made with a glow, so glow with the athletic skills & talents you’ve been endowed with! It’s not that you HAVE TO have a relationship with Jesus to be a part of GITDS, it’s that you GET TO have a relationship with Jesus! It’s not a prerequisite, it’s a privilege.
> How do you become a Christian? -One becomes a Christian by simply believing what God says in the Bible is true. First of all, you believe that God loves you unconditionally and only has good purposed for you (Jer. 29:11; Jn 3:16, 10:10; 1Jn 4:10).
Secondly, you believe that all mankind has "missed the mark" of what God desires of us, therefore
we experience a separation from God that caused us to forfeit
experiencing his love and the good he has purposed for us (Gen 3; Rom. 3:23, 6:23).
Next, you believe that God supplied his Son, Jesus, who removed what separated us from God and through Jesus we experience God’s love and purpose (Jn 14:6; Rom 5:8; 1Cor 15:3-6).
Lastly, you believe that by receiving Jesus into your life as Lord and following him daily, you begin to experience fully, God's love and purpose for your life (Jn 1:12, 3:1-8; Eph 2:8-9; Rev 3:20).

> What about UPWARD and other spiritually focused sports groups? -UPWARD IS A EXCELLENT PROGRAM! -GITDS does not diminish the importance, influence or impact of other athletic groups with a spiritual perspective. Historically, GITDS has embraced and encouraged the training and expression of participating in such groups. GITDS is unique from these groups in that it chooses to engage in competition in secular, community leagues.
> What does WINNING WITHOUT LOSING mean? WINNING WITHOUT LOSING is
a concept, that even though a team or individual may "win" a certain
event or contest, there is the possibility of losing the reward of
winning because of unsportsman-like conduct or attitude. GITDS
chooses to hold to the highest possible standards of personal character,
sportsmanship and athleticism to WIN WITHOUT LOSING!
