Asbury exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Our vision is summarized in just three words: Come. Build. Love.
Those three words seem simple, but they are packed with meaning. They summarize ‘The Path‘ of Christian discipleship at Asbury.
- Come: The first step on The Path is to Come Worship. It is in worship that we experience God and respond to the grace God has made available to us through Jesus Christ. This is a great first step, but it is not the end of The Path. Now we are ready to go to the next step, to Build Faith.
- Build: The second step on The Path is to Build Faith. This normally occurs in a smaller group than when we all gather for worship. In a smaller group, we find a safe place to explore what faith means in the midst of real life. Through life group conversations, studies, and experiences we take steps to trust God and build faith. As we take this step, we are making progress, but there is still more ahead of us. The next step is to Love People.
- Love: The third step on The Path is when we turn our God given abilities and desires outward, and we actively Love People as the hands and feet of Christ. This is where we take notice of the people around us, perhaps those whose names we do not know, and intentionally love them as Christ would love them. We meet them where they are, love them as they are, and invite them to join us on The Path.
