“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.” Ephesians 4:13-15
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).
