EXPLORE



This year we strive to create a culture of Church Growth. Therefore, this year’s theme is, “Total Church Growth.” The apostle Paul knew that a growing church is made up of growing believers. And so he took time to pray for and to instruct the believers he knew. And by God’s grace the church grew. The apostle Peter resolved to always preach in 2 Peter 1:5-8. For this reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge; self-control, and to self-control, perseverance; to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. Hasten, jump, act now to add them; don’t wait to be energetic and earnest, working hard to add these things to your faith and salvation. Let’s make 2019 a year of true change and growth!
