Growth Groups

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.

Practical Instructions for Becoming Healthy Christians
The Corinthian church was proud and prosperous. For them, the Apostle Paul had a stern reminder: Genuine spiritual maturity is found not through status and recognition but through faith, hope, and love. His practical instructions concerning divisions, sexuality, spiritual gifts, and worship are still profoundly relevant for developing healthy, mature churches today―the kind that grow healthy, mature Christians.
