God is big enough to shape and transform your life story.
To connect people to Jesus.
To be an irresistible church that unapologetically connects you, your next-door neighbors, and the next generation to Jesus. Being connected to Jesus leads to a life of purpose, a growing relationship with God, and becoming an activated world-changer.
THE GROWTH TRACK
JW Church connects people to their personal place in God’s epic story of faith in Jesus Christ. By connecting to the Living Vine in faith, we discover who we are in God and we grow deeper in faith and embrace our call to engage others with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Making Disciples of Jesus Christ involves connecting to a life of faith and discipleship through the ministries of the local church. Jesus says in John 15:5, “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.”
JW Church uses God’s grace and forgiveness to grow people into a deeper relationship with God. A growing follower of Jesus Christ seeks to look more like the one in whom they are following, in their hearts and through their words and deeds. Colossians 3:10-11 says, "Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us."
JW Church activates the disciple of Jesus Christ, by providing practical and powerful ways to serve God and neighbor in our world. A Spirit-empowered life is a living witness to an active faith which deploys disciples to love and impact the world for Christ both locally and globally. Connecting to Jesus activates what is learned in the holy places of life to impact the marketplaces of life. 1 Peter 4:10-11 says, "As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."
