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 leave the body (1 Peter 5:10; Romans 2:10; 5:2). This process is an incredible work of God in our lives, however we also need God’s Word and the help of other believers in order to make progress.

Commit to intentional, life-on-life discipleship with a small group.
We pursue Christlikeness and live out gospel-centered community through D-Groups made up of real people who are learning what it means to live out the gospel in everyday life. Meeting throughout the week in homes, 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.
