Growth is not standing in front of a chalkboard. It is standing in front of a mirror.

We believe a spiritually maturing person is growing in these three areas:

A Love for Jesus

"'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’"

Matthew 22:37-39

Fruitful reflection of Jesus

"By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."

Galatians 5:22

A Spiritually Free life

"For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery."

Galatians 5:1
