“the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you…” (Colossians 1:5–6 ESV)
We want to grow in mature faith in Christ Jesus, a faith that works itself out through love (Galatians 5:6). The love of fellow believers for one another is the main mark of Christian growth and maturity. We use the term “grow” because it is what we want to happen, but it is also something we cannot make happen. Paul knows this and tells a church, regarding their experience of God: “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth” (1 Corinthians 3:6). We want God to grow us as we participate in tending each other for growing in Christ’s likeness.
Growing involves caring for the spiritual and physical good of one another by telling one another the gospel, and exercising our gifts to build up the body of Christ. We do this by meeting together in small groups for learning the Bible, encouraging one another in each other’s faith, and praying for and with each other. Join one of our small groups below to grow with others in the Gospel.
