It is our desire that each of our members have a clear path for their spiritual growth and development. Every believer will grow at a different pace, but all believers should continue to grow and mature spiritually. Additionally, we do not want to hold up the spiritual growth process of our members. Rather, we want to enable each member to minister as God delights to use them, within the principles we have in the Bible (see Our Core Values). From the moment you enter into a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ (salvation) you will be in "spiritual growth mode", and you are intended to continue to grow until you go to heaven to be with the Lord. However, your spiritual growth is not automatic, and you will need help to stay on track. That is why being connected in your local church is so important. Take advantage of every opportunity you have to grow in your faith!
