Brethren in Christ
God is calling the Brethren in Christ to reassert the primary purpose of the Church as developing earnest, lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. This means that we, in turn, must actively call one another—seekers and believers alike—to move forward, to take these next steps in the spiritual life.
1) Follow Jesus
2) Grow in Christ-likeness
3) Serve Others
4) Go To All People
