Throughout Scripture there is a common theme that rings true that needs to be the backbone of our ministry. That is to love God, love people, and become unified in Christ.
- Matthew 22:36-40, John 13:34-25
This is stage where an individual moves forward and grows in their relationship with Christ. As well as their relationship with the church body. In this stage, a believer will build up unity in faith, maturity in Christ, and identify their spiritual gifts that God has gifted them with.
- Colossians 2:6-7, Ephesians 4:11-16
This focuses on the going for Christ or being on mission for Christ. As believer's grow in their love for Christ, and their love for people, and are equipped for God's service, the church needs to help create opportunities in which people can help fulfill The Great Commission.
- Matthew 28:18-20
