In the companion pamphlets Connecting At Faith Bible and Growing At Faith Bible we shared how we at Faith desire to introduce people to Jesus and serve them while they learn to follow Jesus.
We also shared how those learning to follow Jesus express their devotion to Jesus in three ways: They connect in Christian community; they grow in their devotion to Christ; and, they include others who don’t yet know Christ.
As a church, then, we provide opportunities to help children, youth and adults connect, grow, and include others in our shared life of following Jesus. Some opportunities serve as “connection-points” where followers of Jesus join with others to enter deeper into the life of the church. Other opportunities help those who have already connected grow deeper in their devotion to Christ. We call these opportunities “grow-points.” A final group of programs serve as “include-points.” These provide training for disciples as they learn to invite friends and neighbors to become followers of Jesus. They also create opportunities to include these friends and neighbors in our shared life of discipleship.
