A LIFE OF WORSHIP
“A time has now come when true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth” John 4:23
A life of worship is critical to our faith journey. Though we most commonly view worship as a specific act at a specific time, in reality it is the manner in which we honor God and engage others in the every day. The true measure of worship...is not how many people come, but how many people live differently because they came.
In the Psalms, seven Hebrew words are translated into the English word praise, each of which represents a different aspect of what it means to truly praise God. Encounter a fresh perspective from the worship practices of the ancient world and grow in your understanding of praise.

A LIFE OF HOSPITALITY
“Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples” John 13:34,35
A life of hospitality is about creating relationships with others, especially the unchurched, based on the value in which we hold God within our hearts.
Relationships are critical to the human race. We all have them, we all need them. Growing our faith relationships is an essential part of sharing our faith relationships however they are not mutually exclusive opportunities. Learn how to be in the right place, at the right time to touch a soul searching for that divine relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

A LIFE OPENING TO JESUS
“A life opening to Jesus includes not only hearing sermons that teach the Scriptures, studying the Scriptures, and reading Scripture devotionally, but also engaging in those spiritual practices that develop our awareness of the presence of God.” - Phil Maynard

A LIFE OBEYING JESUS
“Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.” - John 14:23-24
A life of obeying Jesus involves becoming more like Jesus in our actions, attitudes, and responses to others. It begins with the acceptance of a relationship with Jesus and a commitment to growth as a disciple. Obedience is important because it is the means of shaping us, molding us into the person that God intends us to be, but obedience isn’t the goal, collaboration in the Kingdom of God with the Lord of all creation is the real goal.

A Life of Service
‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ - Matthew 25:44-45
As people of the Word, we are invariably looking for opportunities to transform the “serve us” mentality into bon-a-fide, God-glorifying, Son- celebrating, Spirit-sharing service to others. The church is at it’s best when we are participants in the transformation of lives, rather than moments.

A LIFE OF GENEROSITY
“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” - Acts 20:35
A life of generosity is a lifestyle that is exemplified by God, who has given humanity far more than is necessary or expected.
