  • Mission:  To help all people know Jesus Christ and grow in His image. “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” 2 Peter 1:3-8
  • Biblical Basis: “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 3:18
  • The Nature of Christian Spiritual Growth:  The discipleship of adults is more than an exchange of information – it is a deeply personal, lifelong, spiritual journey of transformation that begins with salvation and continues until Christ returns or we are called home to live with Him. Spiritual growth for adults reflects this truth, transforming us into more faithful disciples of Christ. We are called by the Father, equipped by the Spirit, and sent by the Son to a world in need trusting that we will grow in God’s saving grace as revealed in the humanity and divinity of Jesus Christ.
