What We Believe

Four areas of discipleship focus

Community - Community is grown when we gather for worship, for learning, for encouragement, and for fellowship.

Learning - Learning happens in Bible Study, Christian Education, Accountability Groups, Small Groups, and worship 

Commitment - Commitment is shown when we faithfully attend worship, study, give of our resources and time, and serve as leaders and mentors 

Serving - Serving is helping in worship, with children and youth, teaching a class, mentoring someone in faith, and volunteering in mission

The path of discipleship.

We grow in our faith from starting out questioning and seeking, exploring Christ.  When we profess our faith we begin to transform in Christ, as we grow in faith we mature in Christ, and when we are fully-committed disciples, we are centered in Christ.  

Some of the way the stages of growth in faith relate to our areas of discipleship focus.
