Disciple-Making Electives

Learn & Grow

How do people grow? The Bible’s answer to that question is: believing truth. In other words, believing the Bible. Jesus prayed in John 17:17 that we’d become more holy through the Bible. Paul explains that we grow by “speaking the truth in love” in Ephesians 4:15. Mark 4 even reveals that God’s word ought to produce a spiritual growth in us that leads to spiritual “fruit”. In other words, believing God’s word causes us to live lives that look more and more like Jesus. James speaks to this in James 2:14-26 when he shows us that believing truth must be reflected in the way we live our lives.

Nothing demonstrates a love for God and others best by denying ourselves to help others follow Christ.
