RESOURCES for Growth
We treasure Jesus Christ and desire to become more like Him in our daily lives. Personal growth in Christ-likeness is a biblical goal. However, nobody grows like Him accidentally. People do not drift towards Christ-likeness. Every Christian will always need to work at spiritual growth. Just like we do not drift towards personal fitness as we sit on the couch, Christians have to intentionally work at spiritual fitness.
These are some resources we hope will serve you well in your growth toward Christ-likeness:
A steady diet of biblical preaching is essential for spiritual growth and development. We particularly value expository preaching which explains the intended meaning of the biblical text with application to our contemporary lives. Check out our sermon archives and listen as Pastor Jake explains the biblical text and proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
There is no resource more essential to knowing Jesus Christ and growing in our love for him than the Bible. It is God's inerrant and inspired testimony about who He is and what He has done to redeem sinners through the person and work of His Son Jesus Christ.
We see great value in God's people committing themselves to reading and applying God's Word in personal study. But to be doers of the Word, we must first be hearers and readers. To that end, we recommend some helpful approaches to responsible Bible study that will lead you through the treasure of God's Word.
Reading is a gift from God given to transform our hearts, minds and our entire lives. In addition to reading the Bible, the regular reading of books by godly men and women is a spiritual discipline that will allow God's grace to work more powerfully in your life. Check out our catalog of book recommendations.
Check out these articles that provide meditation on various topics of theology, history, and daily Christian living.
