“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
Here at St. James, we believe that a disciple is someone who is a true follower of Christ. A person who connects with those outside the church, worships God above all else, grows in their faith…on purpose, serves the world around them and gives generously because God has so generously given to them. We believe that these actions, when practiced in our everyday, ordinary lives, can help us to become the people that God calls us to be.
Now, we recognize this doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a constant work in progress and it will change over time. You may have seasons of strength and seasons of weakness in some of these areas, and that is okay. It’s not about perfection; it’s the constant pursuit that counts.
