To help as many people as possible have a growing love relationship with Jesus Christ and to help them pursue with passion the purpose for which they were created and gifted by God.
Partnering with God in the 5 ways He grows His people:
1. Life-changing Truth
2. Significant Relationships
3. Spiritual Disciplines
4. Ministry Opportunities
5. Pivotal Circumstances
7 practices that partner with the way God grows us:
1. Every believer should seek to have a regular, meaningful time alone with God.
2. Every believer should seek to find Christian friends for the purpose of mutual encouragement.
3. Every believer should seek to find their ministry in the church.
4. Every believer should seek to have a compelling mission in the world.
5. Every believer should seek to view their finances as resources to impact and extend the Kingdom.
6. Every parent should seek to influence their children to wholeheartedly follow Christ by having a regular “God-time” as a family.
7. Every believer should seek to experience God regularly in corporate worship services that are encouraging, instructing and motivating.
