The 4 Points of the Cross

The Cross is our Compass. The four points of the cross serve as a guide to help believers examine where they are in their spiritual journey.

From the moment we Believe Christ we start on this spiritual life changing journey. We then begin to Grow in our faith. As we continue growing we realize that this life is not just about us, but about our community. As we focus on the needs of others, we commit to Serve God, our community, and the body of believers. We strive to reach the point of being Mature and complete the task in our life that the Lord Jesus has given us.

Believe Our entry point into this journey with Christ. Jesus said the time is now to repent and believe the “good news.” Mark 1:15

Grow To grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 3:18

Serve To prepare God’s people for works of service to build up the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:12

Mature To consider my life nothing to me, if only I finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me - testifying to the gospel of God’s grace. Acts 20:24

In order to accomplish the goal, we have created an action plan for each point on the cross to assist a believer’s spiritual growth into maturity.

Spiritual Growth Action Plan

Believe:

It starts with salvation (John 3:16). This is the entry point into our journey with Christ where disciples deepen their understanding of who God is and what He has done for them. Discover what Jesus meant when he said, “The time is now to repent and believe the “good news.” (Mark 1:15)

Get in the boat

Grow:

Moving out of Sunday School. Disciples accept the commitment to grow in their relationship with Jesus, and serve Him with their gifts and abilities (Colossians 1:17-20). They understand that this means to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 3:18)

Cast your net

Accountability, Community Groups

Serve:

Walking the walk. Disciples are comitted to working together to fulfill the mission of the Church (1 Corinthians 10:31-33). Additionally, disciples prepare God’s people for works of service to build up the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:12).

Feeding the 5,000

Mature:

Becoming sanctified. Disciples testify to the gospel of God’s grace. “To consider my life nothing to me, if only I finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me - testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.” (Acts 20:24)
