We love to see people Connect with Christ, Grow in Christ and Serve like Christ. That’s why we exist as a church. We also want to see people connect with others in authentic community and develop lasting relationships as they grow in their relationship with God and with other believers. As maturity comes to the believer there is a shift in focus. The Bible calls this change “dying to self” the focus is no longer about me, but how can I serve God and serve others. With that kind of change we can change our communities and our culture.
2 Peter 3:18 “Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All glory to him, both now and forever! Amen.”
Your relationship with God is the most important relationship in your life. Don’t allow anything else to become more important or take away from your relationship with Christ. Devote your energy, time, resources and lifestyle to preserving this relationship. The more effort you put into your relationship with God, the more you will benefit from the relationship. God loves you and He was committed enough in His relationship with you to go to the cross for you!
WHERE CAN I GROW?
There’s a group waiting for you. What are you waiting for?
Jesus taught that spiritual maturity is never an end in itself. Maturity is for ministry! We grow up in order to give out. It is not enough to keep learning more and more. We must act on what we know and practice what we claim to believe. Impression without expression causes depression. Study without service leads to spiritual stagnation.
There’s a place where you can are needed! What are you waiting for?
WHERE CAN I SERVE?
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”Matthew 28:19
We are all called to put our faith into practice. We can now take the relationships, mentoring, and learning, and carry them out in daily life. This is often seen in service projects and missions, but that is only a small, although necessary part of service. Service is how we daily live our lives, modeling Christ’s character to those around us.
