But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.
2 Peter 3:18
Growing towards maturity …
At The House we believe spiritual growth is both ‘knowing the word’ and ‘doing the word. It isn’t enough to quote chapter and verse from the Bible, what we know must result in grace – with respect to how we see ourselves and how we relate to others.Spiritual growth also means serving others. Afterall Jesus Christ came to serve and not to be served (Matthew 20:28)
Spiritual maturity also means our ability to biblically and intelligently engage with the contemporary issues of today’s society. For instance mature Christians should be able to hold his/her own in discussions on hot button cultural issues of the day and to do this GRACEFULLY. To help with all the above we run quite a few courses (they are run periodically and are subject to an optimum number of participants – so please ask or keep a close eye on our news section) And of course we hope everyone attending ‘The House’ will take advantage of the courses we run on basic theology – covering the several doctrines that the church has held on to steadfastly through the centuries.
If you’re just starting out in Christianity the Alpha course is a great place to start. It’s very much recommended. There’s a lot more information on Alpha on this website. Just click on the link above or here.
All current courses are highlighted in the monthly church newsletter so be sure to subscribe to it at the bottom of the page. There’s a lot more in the newsletter of course – news on home groups, upcoming outings, sermon series etc. And needless to say, we will never spam you.
