BELIEVE

Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved... (Acts 16:31)

A person’s spiritual growth begins as you place your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. At that moment the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in the new believer and begins to lead you toward becoming more like Jesus. It is the first step along your spiritual growth path.

As we walk with God our faith will grow. Our belief will become deeper and stronger as we see God’s faithfulness. Our trust level will rise as we find that God’s grace is always sufficient for every trial we face.

The normal Christian life must have an ever-deepening faith in the Lord. It is this to which we are calling people. A life-changing relationship with Jesus begins with believing in Him.

We use our worship services to encourage people to believe in Christ and to pursue a faith that never stops growing.

 

BELONG

Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.… The eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" And the head cannot say to the feet, "I don't need you!" … Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.     (1 Cor. 12:14, 21, 27)

God’s desire and design for you is to be intimately connected to others in His church. He takes a diverse group of people with all kinds of gifts, abilities, skills, and quirks and puts them together to do incredible things. As we connect with one another, we develop relationships. These relationships provide encouragement and accountability – both of which are essential for Christian growth.

It is hard to create intimacy and build relationships in large gatherings. A small group ministry is an incredibly effective way for believers to connect. We encourage you to get involved in a Grace Group—either on campus or off campus. 

 

BECOME

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12-14)

Discipleship is a process. You are becoming the person God designed you to be. You are a believer who worships. You are a belonger who connects in the body of Christ. And you are a becomer who lives out your faith through ministry and missions.

In order for a disciple to experience the greatest satisfaction in life, you must be sharing your faith and serving people. This can take many different forms depending on the spiritual gifts, natural talents, and individual passions of each believer. We encourage you to seek out the “sweet spot” God has for you.
