Spiritual Growth Path
Some places may require you to do many things in their spiritual growth path and some places may not even have a spiritual growth path. We believe that the simplier the path the more likely you are to achieve it. At Hope Church there are just four things we want to help you focus on in order to grow spiritually & relationally with God & others. We believe that if you do these in ever increasing measure you will be on the right track to becoming the person God desires for you to become.
Hope Church exists to lead people into a personal and growing relationship with Jesus Christ by encouraging and equipping them to pursue:
Loving God is our first priority. We want to encourage & equip you to fall deeper in love with God & His Word.
“And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.” - 1 John 1:3
Through corporate worship and relevant teaching that can be applied to our everyday lives, our services will help you fall deeper in love with God and His Word and enrich your personal devotion time.
Are my daily actions becoming more consistent with the priorities of Scripture? Do you make attending Sunday services a priority? Is your relationship with God growing? Do you have a personal devotional plan?
The second priority we focus on is loving others. Developing & growing in your relationship with other believers is a necessity of growing spiritually.
“If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” - Ecclesiastes 4:10
We believe that life change happens best through community. A Life Group is the best environment to open God's Word together, pray together, grow together, be held accountable, be cared for, and experience being part of a "family".
Are you in a Life (small) Group? Are you attending a discipleship class? Do you have someone holding you accountable for your spiritual growth?
The third priority we focus on is using the talents & abilities that God has given us to serve others.
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.” - 1 Peter 4:10
Strategic Service Teams are people gathered together to serve within the church. People serving are vital to Hope Church and we look to them to facilitate and potentially lead the environments we have created to help lead people into a personal and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
Are you involved in a Strategic Service Team? Are you serving in a ministry? Are you serving at Hope?
Our forth priority is developing relationships and being a positive, Godly influence on those outside the faith.
“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.” - Colossians 4:5
Influence with outsiders helps keep the focus on the fact that all believers have the responsibility of carrying out the great commission in their circle of influence.
What are you doing to intentionally connect with someone in your circle of influence who does not know Christ? Are you regularly inviting others to church?
