Alsbury is a place where discipleship results in transformed lives.
This is the first church family some of us have ever connected with. For many, this is the latest church family we have be part of. For all of us, the life we live together should result in personal transformation.
God loves us exactly as we are, but loves us too much to leave us as we are. The purpose of any local church, including Alsbury, is for each of us to be changed by God into, “Fully-devoted followers of Jesus.” Anything less is to miss God’s intent and purpose.
The primary means by which this transformation takes place is our small group structure. Small groups help facilitate spiritual transformation within each of us.
The mission of our small groups is not simply to share biblical information. Rather than simply a deeper understanding of Scripture, we strive toward personal transformation. If transformation of both attitudes and actions is not taking place we have missed God’s intention for small group involvement.
Alsbury is not a church with small groups but a church of small groups. If you are not sharing life with like-minded Christ followers you are denying yourself the opportunity to experience everything God desires for you through connection with the Alsbury family.
Last month our focus was connecting with others. This month we will focus on becoming the fully-devoted followers of Jesus we were all designed to be.
