Good News for bad people through the finished work of Christ on the cross and the endless power of the Holy Spirit. Multiple exposures. Constant immersion. Wave upon wave of grace and truth, according to the Bible.
Safety: a non-accusing environment. No embarrassing anyone. No manipulation. No oppression. No condescension. But respect and sympathy and understanding, where sinners can confess and unburden their souls. A church environment where no one seeking the Lord has anything to fear.
Time: no pressure. Not even self-imposed pressure. No deadlines on growth. Urgency, but not hurry, because no one changes quickly. A lot of space for complicated people to rethink their lives at a deep level. God is patient.

The only thing left is to know the way we grow one step closer to Jesus. In other words, what are the behaviors of a follower of Jesus? What does he expect of his disciples? We believe there are 8 key components of discipleship, what we like to call Next Steps in growing closer to Jesus. You can find out more by attending our Sunday worship service; we are currently unpacking the 8 key components of discipleship in the Next Steps sermon series.
In a gentle environment of good news and safety and time.
Walking along three pathways of growth.
As we practice 8 Next Steps that help us and move us along the journey.
