At Victory Life Church our mission is to Build Healthy Churches that are Growing People In Christ. We believe that is why we exist. We also know that healthy things grow. God desires for us to grow up in Him – to be mature. In this series, Pastors Duane and Jacob Sheriff cover the “Ecosytem of Maturity”, the environments of worship, community, and serving. Constant interaction in these 3 environments is the biblical model for how we grow in Christ. God doesn’t gift us with maturity or withhold gifts because of immaturity. But we must use our gifts in order to develop them. Grace is opposed to earning or deserving, but not opposed to effort or discipline.
