Your Growth is Our Goal

God's desire is that His people be a growing people.  The New Testament contains numerous exhortations that call Christ's followers to be ever-growing, spiritually maturing.

As Jesus talks about the Kingdom, he notes that some seeds "do not mature" (Luke 8:14).  The Apostle Paul consistently stresses the value of spiritual growth.  He points out that mature believers "attain the whole nature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13) and that "all of us who are mature" have a different perspective on life (Colossians 4:12).  Addressing the congregation of Hebrews, the writer challenges, "let us go on to maturity" (Hebrews 6:1).  Peter, who knew the highs and lows of a faith journey, pleads, "Like newborn babies, crave spiritual milk so that by it YOU MAY GROW UP in your salvation" (1 Peter 2:2).

LIFE THROUGH THE WORD MINISTRIES' goal is your spiritual growth.  What we do reflects a desire to enhance people of all ages to experience the deep satisfaction of beginning, maintaining, and completing an intimate walk with Jesus Christ.

A variety of avenues facilitate this journey toward maturity.  We have led in the following types of ministry events:

  •      Revivals - Gathering for Renewal
  •      Holiness Conferences - Learning to Live Like Christ
  •      Seminars on Worship - Connecting to the Source of Life
  •      Personal Growth Conferences - Attaining the Fullness of Christ
  •      Leadership Seminars - Plain Talk About Ministry
  •      Training on Evangelism - Sharing Christ With Gentleness and Respect
  •      Youth Retreats
  •      Vacation Bible Schools

Our goal is that the youngest and the oldest might "hear the word and understand it, producing a crop that yields a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown"  (Matthew 13:23).
