The path is simple and has four stages: Regular Attendance, Service, Ownership, and Invested. Where are you on the path? Is it time for you to take the next step?
Attend your local church (Body) regularly. Be committed to regular fellowship with other believers and learning the Bible. Your spiritual health is important. Make your church a priority on your calendar.
Participate in Service where you are gifted. Look for areas where you can plug in and help others already serving.
Take Ownership (“This is my church”). Find your place of service and lead those who help you. When things get hard, you are committed to seeing it through.
Invest yourself and your resources into less mature believers coming up behind you and in support of those shepherding you.
