Our Biblical Purpose:
To "GO and MAKE Disciples". Matthew 28:19-20
Our Mission/Vision Statement:
To help students become fully devoted followers of Jesus.
"SURRENDER THE STOOL". Romans 12:1-2
Level 1: Fellowship/Small Groups = Bee Teams
Level 2: Discipleship/Small Groups/Worship = Catalyst
Level 3: Outreach/Serve/Ministry - Guided by adult leader, lay leader and/or Pastor
How we Measure Full Devotion:
Full devotion to Jesus is a journey that believers should be engaged in for the rest of their lives. We believe everyone has a next step in their journey toward full devotion to Christ and living a life surrendered to Him.
Grace - Accepting God's gift of grace for personal salvation and developing and maintaining relationships with unchurched/unbelieving friends to intentionally share the message of God's grace and to lead them in taking their next step toward full devotion to Christ.
Level 2 Catalyst
- Share Gospel Message through relationships with unbelievers
- Know Our Story - learn how to share story and spend time working on writing it
Growth - Using spiritual practices and discipleship classes to draw closer to the heart of God as we seek to become more loving, serving, integrity-filled people developing the character of Christ and becoming more like Him.
