Discipleship

True Christian life is discipleship by Jesus.

Jesus disciples us in the context of real life. Therefore, our spiritual growth takes place in real life.

"Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ." (1 Cor 11.1)

Paul could say that confidently with humility because he was being discipled by Jesus in real life. He was imitating Jesus in everyday situations, following His way, living out His truth and experiencing His life.

Our tenets reflect our desires and commitment to be discipled by Jesus, fathered by God and led by the Holy Spirit. They direct how we do our ministry. To live them out is messy and adventurous, but the rewards are absolutely phenomenal - growing in more likeness of Jesus!
