But grow in the grace and knowledge of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. – 2 Peter 3:18a
Growing in Christ occurs in many ways. We focus on two of those aspects in particular at the BCM: discipleship and evangelism. We pursue discipleship in a manner that distinctively targets each individuals’ needs for spiritual maturity in order, “To equip the saints for the work of ministry… to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13, ESV). As for evangelism, Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19a, ESV). We teach our students how to share the love of Christ in all aspects of their lives.
Growing in Christ takes on many forms. We lead our students to pray, share their faith, worship with other students, etc.
