Develop refers to the fact that we believe discipleship is a process. If we truly want to mature and grow as disciples of Christ, we need to faithfully attend services, connect groups, and strategic meetings of Word and Spirit, engendering faith, hope and love.
Intimate refers to worship and our commitment to God’s Word. We believe in passionate worship where we experience and commune with God every time we worship corporately and individually! We believe that God has given His Word as our daily bread. Intimacy is strengthened and deepened through learning and receiving the Word in prayer, and worship and church.
Relationship refers to grace, not law. We believe that God sent His Son so that we could be forgiven and have a relationship with Him. This experience should never be religious or lifeless, but an ongoing, living, and vital relationship!
Matthew 22:36-40 – “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
