Our Formation

What does it mean to be a Christian? The invitation of the Gospel is not an invitation to recite a prayer once, but an invitation to follow Jesus with all of our lives. Many of us have a misconception of what this looks like and spend our lives not as followers of Jesus, but as fans, sympathizing with Jesus' teachings but never letting His life take a hold of our lives. To be a true disciple, this is, a follower, means to orient all of our lives around the life of Jesus.

 
 

TOGETHER IN THIS, EP. 6

Jesus makes a direct correlation between loving Him and being disciples of Him, and loving people. In other words, you cannot be a disciple of Jesus without loving people, because love is at the core of who God is. Following Jesus is learning to love not only God, but other people as well, and learning to love takes practice. So there is no way of learning how to love without interacting with people. Which means that you cannot fully follow Jesus without living in community.

The four pillars of our formation, ep. 4

This is the promise of Jesus: If you listen to my words and put them into practice, your life is going to become the type of life that can withstand anything. That no matter what happens, no matter what the future brings, good or bad, at the end of the day, at the end of the tunnel, at the end of the storm, when everything else has fallen down, you are gonna be standing with me.


How we change, ep. 3

In the Christian faith, identity precedes behavior. God wants to change who you are before He changes what you do... One of the reasons the Church exists is to week after week remind you of your identity. When you are beaten down, when you feel defeated, when you feel tired, when you feel hopeless, when you feel like you can’t go forward anymore, the church says: “No, no, no. You are God’s son, you are God’s daughter, and God is your father who loves you, and you are coming home with Him.”
