“Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”
We desire to be a people that pursue an authentic Christian life and endeavor to develop mature, reproducible, Spirit-filled Christian disciples that will:
Grow in the Lord— Growing up necessitates a personal devotion to the scriptures, developing a practice of spiritual discipline, and a consistent dedication to prayer. Maturity is proven as one takes personal responsibility to institute these disciplines and through these disciplines we become more Christlike.
Minister to the Lord—The mature believer will be moving toward uninhibited worship, devoted prayer, generous giving, and selfless service.
Minister with the Lord—proclaiming His words and doing His works in the world (outside the church walls).
This happens best in small group settings where we can connect more intimately with other believers and grow in relationship with the Lord and one another, because we were never meant to walk out our faith alone. We gather to grow!
“And let us consider how to spur one another on to love and good deeds. Let us not neglect meeting together, as some have made a habit, but let us encourage one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.“
We also offer a discipleship intensive course called The School of Signs & Wonders. We want every member to have gone through this course at least once. SSW unites believers to go forth into the world performing signs and wonders to lead all men and women to Jesus. This class runs annually.
Members are encouraged to join a Growth Group or attend SSW as soon as they complete membership.
