A living faith will grow spiritual maturity in the Body of Christ.
Gathering together with the Body is a wonderful expression of worship, but our growth must extend beyond a weekly gathering. At West Chester Baptist Church, we have designed the next step in the discipleship process to connect
believers with a smaller community that will empower believers to live out the "One-anothers" of Scripture while
growing according to God's Word. As part of this, our Growth Groups are designed to create deeper
aspects of fellowship, community, accountability and individual spiritual growth.
And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
