WHERE ARE YOU IN YOUR FAITH JOURNEY?
At ICC, we realize that everyone is in process.
Some are new believers – just beginning their spiritual journey, as they discover the God of the Bible. Others have known the Lord for many years, regularly attending and being active in church. Yet the one thing they (and everyone in between) have in common is that the road to a deeper, richer faith is a process. The idea is, regardless of where you are in your spiritual journey, we all need to look for what’s next – in other words, anticipate our next step. For some, that might be walking into the church for the very first time. For others, joining a small group or a Bible study – or leading one! It’s really quite simple, as people become more engaged in their faith, not only does the Kingdom of God grow, but so does the individual’s heart.
Below are the 5 stages of how someone is (can be) transformed from community to core – all to the glory of God!
