Grow: Build up and restore the broken!
Grow in Knowledge.
You were created to know God relationally. This is more than head knowledge. The incarnation and the cross show us the infinite lengths God is willing to go to have a close, intimate relationship with us. He doesn’t just love us. John 3:16 says “God so loved” us. Following Jesus means knowing and being known by a God who is wild about us.
Grow in Freedom.
Following Jesus also means becoming more like Him. Your salvation and eternity are secure the moment you accept Jesus as your savior, but your sanctification (spiritual maturity) is a journey that doesn’t happen in isolation. Becoming more like Jesus means letting go of your past and growing in freedom surrounded by a loving community. Small Groups at ACOG are designed to help you grow in freedom. We have three semesters throughout each year to give easy on-ramps for you to connect to community. Our kids' and students also have small groups that are grade and gender specific.
Grow in Purpose.
Small Groups are a big deal at ACOG because we believe that anonymity is the enemy of discipleship.
God didn’t just save you from something, He saved you for something! You were created in the image of God with a unique purpose. Often the thing He saves you from is connected to the thing He wants to use you for. Purpose isn’t something we create or choose, it’s something we discover in the content of community. Discovering your kingdom purpose is a journey and we’re committed to help you every step of the way.
