Don’t mistake Bible knowledge, years of church attendance, physical age, or education for spiritual maturity. Don’t let self-centeredness or idealism distract you at this step. This is the stage where one takes off the bib and puts on the apron for Christ. In the Beginner stage, as with an infant, great care is taken to walk with and care for a person in this vulnerable stage. As a Growing member the responsibility falls on you to begin serving others faithfully.
Some key phrases of the Growing stage are:
Become bold in Christ and begin forging new relationships to your church family. Begin to focus on a couple of Truths:
Worship: Attend Discover LifePoint.
Biblical Community: Regularly attend a group
Service: Serve on a team.
Influence: Share your story with others. Book: Share Jesus without Fear
Generosity: Serve your community. Tithe and give.
