A faith community GROWING TOGETHER

…in the LOVE of God

…in the KNOWLEDGE of God

…in the WORK of God

…in the IMAGE of God

“…we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” – Ephesians 4:15-16 ESV

Growing in the LOVE of God

…having a proper love for God, Self, Each Other, and The World

 Growing in the love of God has more to do with our motives than our action.  As we focus on this growth area, we want to ask what the people “feel”.  This growth area has everything to do with enlarging the heart.

Growing in the KNOWLEDGE of God

…through Studying Scripture and Sharing Stories together

Growing in the knowledge of God has everything to do with developing the backdrop by which we interpret life.  As we focus on this growth area, we want to ask what the people “think”.  This growth area has everything to do with renewing the mind.

Growing in the WORK of God

by making a difference inside of the church & outside the church

Growing in the work of God has everything to do with what we are doing.  As we focus on this growth area, we want to ask what the people “do”.  This growth area has everything to do with using our strength or hands and feet.

Growing in the IMAGE of God

…by looking like Him in character and purpose.

Growing in the image of God has everything to do with who we are…our soul.  As we focus on this growth area, we want to ask what people “see”.  This growth area has everything to do with God being seen through us.  People should see us as “holy and blameless”.
