Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
(1 John 2.6)
The purpose of discipleship is to become like Jesus, to live as Jesus did and to follow in his footsteps.
Who we are becoming is formed by the daily routines and practices of our everyday lives. The power of spiritual discipline is central to the journey of discipleship.
We invite you, as part of this church, to live out these five patterns: pray daily, read the Bible, join a group, commit to a service and walk with others.
Think of the difference it would make if you began and ended each day in prayer. Challenge yourself to pray and ask God to show you what to pray for – from world issues to close friends, for personal growth and for those who may not know Jesus yet.
Find a time, place and pattern for reading the Bible every day. As you follow the Bible in One Year, be expectant about seeing your life and walk with God transformed by listening to his voice through Scripture.
You may also want to explore more through Theology for Life. It is perfect for anyone who would like to deepen their faith and understanding of the Bible, for those who have recently come to faith, or those who have been Christians for many years.
Joining a Connect Group or one of our other groups gives you the opportunity to build friendship and grow spiritually. It also provides space to serve and bless others, and to explore and use the gifts God has given you.
The Christian life is not always easy. Find two or three other Christians to join you on your journey and meet with them regularly to do life, have fun together, to support, strengthen and encourage you on your daily walk with God and to remind you that you’re not on your own.
