Five Faith Catalysts

Did you know we believe there are five primary catalysts God uses to grow our faith? It’s our responsibility as a church to create environments where God can grow our faith in these five ways.

  • Providential Relationships—People who play significant roles along the way in our faith story
  • Private Disciplines—God uses systematic prayer, Bible study, and generosity to grow our confidence in Him.
