Grow in Grace
Imagine your faith journey as the growth of a tree. A healthy, fruitful tree requires various elements to thrive, just like our spiritual lives need different aspects to grow in discipleship. Our program will help you cultivate these elements, ensuring you become a strong and fruitful disciple of Christ.
Discipleship is a big part of being a Christian, which Jesus told us to do. Here's why it's important and what you get out of it:
Why its important

Following Jesus' Command

Jesus told us to make disciples, which means helping others learn about Him and follow Him (Matthew 28:19-20).

Building Community

 It creates a sense of community and belonging, where you can support, fellowship, and encourage each other (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Growing in Faith
 

Discipleship helps you grow in your faith, understand more about God, and become more like Jesus (Ephesians 4:13-15).

Sharing Your Faith
 

Being a disciple makes you better at sharing your faith with others and leading them to Jesus (Acts 1:8).

Personal Change
 

It transforms you, helping you renew your mind and heart to be more like Jesus (Romans 12:2).

Developing Leaders

Discipleship helps develop future leaders for the church, ensuring that the church can keep growing and serving (2 Timothy 2:2).

Benefits of Discipleship

Planting a Tree

1. Faith: The Roots 

Roots provide stability and nourishment.

Just as a tree's roots dig deep into the soil to absorb water and nutrients, our faith forms the foundation of our spiritual life. Understanding the basics of Christian doctrine, committing to a personal relationship with Jesus, and being grounded in faith are crucial for stability and growth.

2. Worship: The Trunk

The trunk supports the entire tree.

Worship is the trunk of our spiritual tree, providing support and structure. Personal and corporate worship nourishes our souls and keep us connected to God. Regular prayer, Bible reading, and participation in church services strengthen this vital part of our faith.

3. Growth: The Branches

Branches reach out and grow.

Just like branches extend and grow, our spiritual growth involves extending our knowledge and deepening our spiritual practices. Engaging in spiritual disciplines, Bible study, and continual learning helps us reach higher and bear more fruit.

4. Engagement: The Leaves

Leaves contribute to the tree’s health and provide nourishment.

Involvement in church activities and community service are like the leaves that absorb sunlight and contribute to the tree’s health. Serving in various ministries and outreach programs keep our faith vibrant and active, contributing to the well-being of the entire body of Christ.

5. Evangelism: The Fruit

The fruit is the visible result of a healthy tree.

Evangelism is the fruit of our discipleship journey. We produce visible growth outcomes when we share our faith and lead others to Christ. Just as a healthy tree bears fruit, a mature disciple naturally shares the good news and positively impacts others.

By nurturing each part of this tree—our roots (faith), trunk (worship), branches (growth), leaves (involvement), and fruit (evangelism)—we can grow into strong, mature disciples of Christ. Our discipleship program is here to guide you through this journey, helping you develop each area so you can thrive in your faith and make a meaningful impact in the world.

 

Let’s grow together in our journey of discipleship, becoming the strong, fruitful trees God intends us to be!
