How can I grow in my faith?

That's a great question, and one every Christian needs to ask themselves. Jesus' intent for the church is that we would continually be growing closer to Him and our knowledge of the Bible. In fact, that's the mission He gave us in Matthew 28:19-20 (a passage we call the Great Commission) when He said "Make disciples" and "teach them all I have commanded you." Our goal as a church is not just to reach people, but to teach them as well. We are here to help you grow!
