This year we are dedicating a whole sermon series to each of our five Core Values. Our first two Core Values are more vertically focused on our relationship with God, “growing in God.” Our last three Core Values are more horizontally focused on the mission of Christ by “investing in others.”
Our third Core Value at MCC is “Growing God’s Kingdom: Increasing and developing devoted disciples of Jesus.” It was Jesus’ life priority to bring people into an eternal relationship with His Father. Jesus has empowered His people to grow His Church by making disciples. A disciple is one who is becoming like Jesus. Jesus expects us to be responsible for adding disciples, growing numerically, and to assist in their maturity, growing developmentally.
