Grow in your faith

A disciple follows Jesus and makes other disciples (who know how to make other disciples)

Our journey of faith is one that leads to maturity and discipleship is the path. A disciple (follower of Jesus) becomes mature in his faith by practicing the disciplines of the faith such as prayer, Bible reading and study, and attending worship. A disciple makes other disciples. We not only learn how to live out our new identity in Christ—we help others do the same.

How can we do this?

Next steps

Be active in your faith.  

Take the next steps to grow as a disciple.

The purpose of Coastal Community Church is to help people in their spiritual journey become fully devoted followers of Christ. This process is something we call spiritual growth.

There are two core truths we believe about spiritual growth:

1. It’s yours and God’s responsibility that you grow spiritually

 (Philippians 2:12-14)

2. Spiritual growth is not automatic. You need to learn how to grow

 (Hebrews 5:12-13)

Coastal Community Church offers several classes that can help you grow. These classes are designed to meet you wherever you are.  Contact Pastor Andy in the Office at 805-472-2766 to begin!
