If you want to understand the mission of South Lakes, you need to understand what we believe following Jesus is all about. Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship with Jesus which results in radical life change. Following Jesus is the heart of Christianity. As we study Jesus in the New Testament, we find that his life was all about relationships. First, His relationship with the Father, second, His relationship with his disciples, and third, His relationship with the people who didn’t know God at all.
So what does the life of a Jesus follower look like? Answer: relationships. At South Lakes, we use three phrases to describe these relationships…
A disciple of Christ will want to spend time with Jesus personally and daily in order to strengthen their devotion to Him.
A disciple of Christ connects with others in community both in a large and small group setting.
A disciple of Christ shares in the mission of the church locally and globally.
The life of a Jesus follower is all about relationships!
So how you deepen these three relationships and grow as a follower of Jesus? Answer: The same way you deepen any relationship—TIME. Check out video below:
