primary growth engine

Becoming like Jesus takes intention; it takes knowledge, commitment, discipline, community and practice. It is our hope that everyone, at some point, ventures through our three-part curriculum based growth group and be so inspired that by the end they'll start again while taking a group of friends through it too.

  • the meaning of marriage

    Modern culture would have you believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. But these modern-day assumptions are wrong. Timothy Keller, with insights from Kathy, his wife of thirty-seven years, shows marriage to be a glorious relationship that is also misunderstood and mysterious.
