As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
Christians live every single day in the middle of the process of becoming more like Jesus. This process, called sanctification, happens in three stages. There is an initial freeing from sin that happens when Christians place their trust in Christ (Romans 6:11; Galatians 2:20; Colossians 3:3). Next, God invites and empowers every Christian to cooperate with Him in an ongoing process of spiritual growth (1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 2:11, 13:20-21; 1 Corinthians 9:24-27; Philippians 2:12-13). Finally, those who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ will be made completely holy when they enter eternal life (1 Peter 5:10; Romans 2:10; 5:2). This process is primarily a work of God in our lives, however we also need God’s Word, and the help of other believers in order to progress in this process.

Men's Weekly Bible Study
But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Biblical counseling is the compassionate process of one redeemed sinner utilizing the Biblical principles found in God's Word to aid and guide other sinners through life-challenging situations and struggles. It is discipleship and Biblical problem-solving through the power of the Word, the Holy Spirit, and prayer to achieve God's plan of transforming each of us into the image of Jesus Christ; for God's glory!
Commit to intentional, life-on-life discipleship with a small group.
We pursue Christ-likeness and live out gospel-centered community through D-Groups. Meeting throughout the week in homes all over the Greenwood area, these small groups focus on training up disciples of Jesus Christ, building authentic community and friendships, and providing care for our church body. We know that when you get a group of people together things can get messy, and that's okay! God loves us in our mess and through our mess. There is no perfect D-Group, just real groups with real people.
Living the abundant life God has in store for us as we grow closer to Christ and we live to please Him and bring Him glory.
Biblical Counseling utilizes the solutions God provides through Scripture to the problems that come with living in a sinful world. The Bible helps us define and understand the problems and is our guide for developing solutions. Biblical Counselors work in cooperation with God’s Word and the Holy Spirit to help resolve the problems we face every day.
