We refuse to be complacent in our knowledge and in our faith.  We hunger and thirst for the Word of God because we desire to grow (Romans 4:20).  We want to be conformed to the image of our savior, Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29).  This is not a concept we take lightly.  We grow by purposely studying scripture individually, with our families and with the church (2 Tim 3:16). Growing the kingdom of God is not optional (Matthew 28:16-20).  That means reaching out much further than the walls we assemble in.  We refuse to ever be satisfied with our growth.  We grow His kingdom through missionaries and by being actively involved in our community and acknowledging those who are eternally lost.  Realizing the multitude of souls currently headed down a path that leads to an eternal hell has dramatic implications on the way we live and interact in the world.
