Grow in the grace & knowledge of our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ.

Who is called to grow?

We are broken people. Broken beyond repair. There’s no way for an improvement or update. And Jesus is the only solution to this problem. Through Him we are born again into a new family, with new hope and future.

Christianity unlike any other religion is not about fixing up a person. It’s about a complete overhaul. From dead to alive. From sinner to born again. A new creation. (2nd Corinthians 5:17)

And that’s a wonderful thing. Once the spirit comes to life, the person steps on the path of learning, growing and seeing the world in a new way. We are now ready to learn to walk and talk, and walk the talk.

Just like a baby, once born into the family has to grow up, same for disciples of Christ. Even though baby is alive and healthy she is not perfect in all of her ways. As a newborn she begins her learning journey to adulthood. Through careful guidance of parents and through pleasant and painful experiences she grows up and matures.

There’s no other way to receive the benefits of growing spiritually, then to be born into the family of God. The Bible is not just a collection of great advice and principles, it’s a life-changing experience.

So in case you wonder why Christianity didn’t or doesn’t work for you, consider this: before you can grow you must be born. If you want to change your life and to continually improve, there’s only one way: realize that you’re broken beyond repair,  give up your life to Jesus who will give you a new life, and then enjoy the work that Holy Spirit will do in your heart as you continue to obediently walk with the Lord.

We have so much to learn in this life, and God prepared for each so many wonderful lessons that will make us more loving, caring, gentle, wise, humble, patient, strong… Saved people are called to grow!
