respond to the invitation to become Jesus' disciple

This Includes:

DRAWN - God desires ALL people to be saved and He is in the process of drawing everyone into relationship with his Son. This process is accelerated as Jesus is lifted up by His people, therefore, we intentionally elevate Him in our gatherings so that everyone can experience Him.  ( 1 Timothy 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9; John 6:44; John 12:32; Luke 14:23)

DECISION - Jesus draws people so that He can introduce Himself and present them with the invitation to follow. As this invitation becomes clear and understood, it requires a response. We are committed to helping individuals respond to the invitation to following Jesus in an appropriate, informed way that recognizes the decision to impact all of life and eternity. (Joshua 24:15; 2 Corinthians 6:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; Philippians 2:12–13; James 2:17–18)

BAPTISM - water baptism is the appropriate next step for a new follower of Christ. Baptism is a highly symbolic act of obedience that makes their decision to follow Christ public. We make this possible by scheduling water baptisms during our weekend gatherings throughout the year. (Acts 2:36–41; Mark 16:16)

CONNECT

live as a committed member within His family

This Includes:

FRIENDSHIPS - the local church is not a building, a business, a weekly event, or a gathering of people with a similar interests. It is a family. Therefore we strive to create opportunities for people to be introduced to one another and to grow in family relationships in all of our gatherings. We specifically make this possible throughout all of our gatherings and with our Connectivity Team. (Hebrews 13:2)

CONNECTED - followers of Jesus are automatically members of God’s church family, but they are also intended to be connected in a practical sense. We strive to help everyone at Elevate to be known, loved and cared for while doing the same for others by placing them in Connect Groups. (1 Peter 2:17;  Colossians 2:19)

COMMITTED - we are committed to helping believers to understand the importance and experience the value of living life within the context of the local church family. We invite those considering calling Elevate Church home to attend our "OUR HOUSE, YOUR HOUSE" class. (Acts 2:44–47 ; Hebrews 10:24–25)

GROW

pursue spiritual maturity to experience His best

This Includes:

DISCIPLINES - spiritual growth and maturity are the byproduct of time and a commitment to Biblical disciplines including the study of scripture, prayer, participation in church family life, serving, giving, obedience, etc. We emphasize the mastery of these and other disciplines so that a believer can successfully navigate through life and assist others in the same. (Ephesians 4:13-14; 2 Timothy 2:15) 

TRANSFORMATION - Christ's sacrifice applied to a person’s life brings immediate and complete forgiveness for sin, but we recognize His ongoing transformative work in the lives of His followers, perfecting them into His likeness for His Glory and their best. This transformation allows believers to avoid the trappings of sinful living and their repercussions and position themselves for His best. (Romans 8:29; Romans 12:1-2; Galatians 6:7-9)

HEALTH - God’s heart is for the health of his followers, and we believe that this is best achieved when modeled through healthy leaders. We facilitate a safe environment for such dialogue including an annual health evaluation for all ministry leaders focusing on physical, soul, spiritual, family and ministry health. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20;  Ephesians 6:25; 1 Timothy 3:4-5; 1 Timothy 3:12-13)

PARTICIPATION - Jesus died so that everyone could become a member of His family, and as a result, everyone has an active role to play. We strongly emphasize all believers participation in the church family with their time, possessions and talents. (Acts 2:42-47)

PURPOSE - God has gifted each member of His family with talents designed to positively impact His Kingdom. These giftings reveal His specific purposes and are often discovered as through faithful service, revelation and defined personal burden. We are committed to helping each individual discover those purposes by getting them involved in the appropriate areas of service, while giving extra focus to those who show an ability to lead others by means of our Emerging Leaders training intensive. (Philippians 3:12-14)
