Ephesians 4:11-13 says, "And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ."
Similarly, Colossians 1:28-29 states, "We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me."
Based on these verses, our goal at Truth Bible Church is to become a body of believers who are constantly growing together in greater likeness to our Lord, Jesus Christ, and producing mature/complete Christians who are (7 C's):
Seven C's of a mature believer:
by the Gospel - Surrendering full control to Jesus Christ as Lord so He is central and comes to have first place in every part of life
in the Word - Listening daily to God by reading the Bible so the will and plan of God is known, loved, and obeyed
in Prayer - Talking to God all the time through prayer by expressing adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and requests
to Fellowship - Investing regular time with God's people so they are mutually strengthened, built up, and encouraged
in Witnessing - Proclaiming the good news/gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have yet to repent and by faith believe in Him as Lord and Savior
in Worship - Giving glory to God in everything and at all times – thinking, speaking, and acting Biblically and overall becoming…
Christians - Reproducing other mature Christians and church leaders who will multiply and disciple/train up other mature Christians
