One of the ways we help to equip and train believers is through teaching. We believing teaching has great value in the lives of people who are open to learn and grow in their relationship with the Lord. As they are taught and led into a deeper revelation of Jesus, they have life-changing experiences. Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free” (John 8:32). We love seeing people come into a deeper knowledge of the truth and experience freedom in their lives.
Another way that we see our calling to equip believers playing out is through practical discipleship. We believe that in order to impact people’s lives you must be willing to spend time in life with them. This takes a commitment to invest in people and be present. This means that we highly value relationships with people. We have learned that a transactional approach to ministry can be very impersonal and ineffective. So, as best we can, we are intentional about investing our lives into people. In this context we not only see others growing and changing, but we also are deeply impacted in our own lives.
