Purpose of Growth Groups
Living out what it means to love others through personal discipleship. Growth groups are dedicated for followers of Jesus who want to develop spiritually and be held accountable to others. While Non-believers are invited and encouraged to attend, the purpose of growth groups is for believers to grow closer together, and create a family united by Christ of one heart and mind. Pursuing to know and understand the mind and will of the Lord through the reading and studying of His Word. The primary function is to create strong disciples of Christ ready to work and serve God.
