Assembly of God
Colossians 1:9-10 sets the fourth core value of Leisure World Assembly of God, “Grow Continuously.”
If a child begins developing at a rate that falls within normal limits and then stops growing, the parents would be concerned. It would be obvious that there was a problem in the health of the child that was inhibiting their growth toward maturity. The same principle applies to spiritual growth.
A Christian begins as an infant, so to speak, in his or her understanding and practice of their faith. If all goes as it should, the Christian will mature in faith. There are outward indications of a person’s inner transformation. If something interferes with the growth of a person’s spiritual life and they are at the same level of faith today as they were 20 years ago or longer, they should be just as concerned about what is impeding them in knowing God better.
Pastor Chuck Franco will share the fourth core value on Sunday, Aug. 29, at 10:30 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2. The Bible study, “Journey into Hope, When Life is Tough,” remains open on Wednesday at 10 a.m. All other meetings and activities, including hymn sing, are temporarily closed until the most recent wave of COVID-19 subsides.
