About Us

Little Saints Press was founded in 2008 by Rick Tancreto for the purpose of introducing children to the core truths of the Christian faith. Our goal is to bring basic Christian doctrine to life through illustrated children’s books and a supplementary educational program.

For more than eight years, pastors and Christian brothers and sisters (including children) gifted in teaching, writing, understanding doctrinal truths, developing and directing religious educational programs, editing, homeschooling, proofreading, illustrating, and graphic and website design have been coming together to produce and publish the award-winning series Hang On to Jesus! Adventures and The Great Rescue.

Our hope at Little Saints Press is to welcome children to Jesus Christ, equip them with a faith that works in real life, and prepare them to go into the world to serve in Jesus’ name.

What We Believe

The sole basis of our belief is the Bible in its original text, which is uniquely inspired by God, without error, and the final authority on all matters. As the Bible teaches, there is one God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – each possessing all the attributes of Deity.

The Son, Jesus Christ, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. By His sacrifice, Jesus accomplishes salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. Jesus died, rose from the dead and ascended to Heaven, where He exists as the only mediator between God and man. Jesus will return to earth to consummate history.

We believe unequivocally in the authority of the Holy Scriptures in all matters pertaining to faith, doctrine and practice.

We believe in the triune Godhead.

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the world and the sole mediator between God and man.

We believe Jesus’ resurrection to be the focal point of all history and the principal reality in the lives of all believers. We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory.We believe in the imminent return of Christ.

We believe in the Holy Spirit and in His past and present regenerative role in the lives of all believers in Christ.  The Holy Spirit dwells within us and enables us to live a godly life.

We believe man is justified by God’s grace through faith alone in the finished work that was accomplished by Christ at Calvary.

We believe salvation is available to all people through repentance and faith in Christ.  Salvation and cleansing from sin are available only through repentance and faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe the church is Christ’s body of believers on earth, summoned to preach the Gospel and administer the sacraments. 

We believe the Spirit of God inhabits His church.

We believe all men will be resurrected to receive either eternal reward in Heaven or eternal punishment in Hell.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Jesus Christ, with equality across racial, gender and class differences.
