"So that we may present everyone mature in Christ…" - Colossians 1:28
Helping people grow into committed followers of Jesus Christ.
Calvary Chapel Morris Hills is all about "helping people grow into committed followers of Jesus Christ.” We facilitate that personal growth through a variety of ways that God has given us to grow in our faith, most notably the Word of God, prayer, gathering together and service to others.
We are, by design, more of a “relationally driven” church than an “event driven” church that seeks the “growth” of people in four basic areas or steps.
The first step is Knowing God personally. As Jesus Himself said, this begins when we “repent and believe the Gospel.” That is, we turn from living for ourselves and trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. After that, we begin the exciting journey of faith and seek to know God more deeply through the careful study of His word and prayer. Click here if you would like to know more about knowing God.
The second step is Knowing the People of God personally. We achieve this through a variety of ways including our Sunday Service and various relationally driven events and environments. Most of all, we do this through our many Community Groups. Community Groups are smaller groups that meet together at various times for the purpose of learning, asking questions, establishing friendships and praying for one another.
The third step is Serving in God’s Church. The church is God’s light in the world. Together we declare the “Good News” and together we invite others to know God personally and to become part of His family. Then, as a family, we serve one another in love in a variety of serving opportunities.
The fourth step is Serving in God’s World. With God’s help, we take the Gospel to the people of the community and the world. We do this through a variety of ways including service projects, evangelism, missions and outreaches.
