Our Discipleship Pathway

Our Discipleship Pathway

We live as disciples of Jesus Christ as we worship, grow, give, serve and share.

Discipleship Pathway

We want to create opportunities for all people to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ and our discipleship pathway is designed to help you grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ. These practices will lead us to the destination of perfect love of God and neighbor.

What is a disciple? How do I grow in my faith?

A disciple is a person who follows Jesus by engaging in spiritual practices to worship, grow, give, serve and share. A person engaging in these practices will grow toward perfect love of God and neighbor. You can grow in your faith by adding a practice, taking a next step or growing deeper.
