Spiritual growth can sometimes sound really complicated, but really it is pretty simple. At People's Church, we have developed a simple, easy to follow system to help you grow spiritually. As you can see to the side, we have put our system on a baseball diamond to show the progression.
1st Base: Church Attendance. Hearing God's Word each week, spending time in corporate worship, hanging out and building friendships with other believers. We all need this, AND it's biblical. See you at church Sunday!
2nd Base: Daily prayer and Bible reading. Just like it sounds, one of the most important steps you can take to grow spiritually is to spend time each day praying and reading your Bible. Set aside a specific time each day and do your best to stick to it.
3rd Base: Serving in Ministry. Part of growing as a follower of Christ is sharing with others what God has done in your own life. There is no better way to do that than to volunteer in ministry. Just as there was someone ministering to you when you came to know God, someone out there needs you to show them Jesus. It may be greeting someone at the door, volunteering in the kids ministry or operating a camera in the auditorium...God can use all to advance His Kingdom.
Home Plate: Community Groups. Groups are the final piece of the puzzle that brings everything together and are places where you can find friends, accountability, care & prayer. Life, and especially our walk with God, shouldn't be done alone. We need each other.
