I commit to be a missional follower of Jesus who is consistently growing in these discipleship traits:
I AM RESPONSIBLE
I am responsible for my own spiritual growth. I believe that spiritual disciplines are not religious busy-work. They are tools to help me in my pursuit of Christ-centered, Spirit-filled living. I read scripture, I pray, I confess sin, and I take time to listen to God.
I AM LOVING
I know that the best way to be loving is to realize that I am loved. I have a Father who held nothing back. Even knowing the darkest sections of my soul, He sent His son to die for me, proving his love for mankind. I love because He first loved me.
I AM GRATEFUL
I don't just feel gratitude, I express it. I am learning how to rest in all circumstances, giving thanks on all occasions. Even in my pain, I’m aware of the ways God has continuously blessed me.
I AM GENEROUS
I have a God who is generous towards me, so my response is to be generous towards others. I leverage my time, treasures, and talents in ways that love and serve my community and the world.
I AM FAITHFUL
I am faithful to allow Christ’s character to be formed in me, even when it’s uncomfortable. I desire to leave a legacy of serving others. I am a person of integrity. I don’t run from adversity, I walk through it fearlessly.
I don’t just go to church, I am the church. I celebrate on Sunday, realizing I am a fully invested follower of Jesus Christ on Monday. I am a work in progress, and I am committed to the process.
I AM A DISCIPLE, AND I AM ON MISSION.
