Jesus Christ was the most fully alive and complete human to ever walk the planet. To become a disciple and follower of Jesus is to be formed into his image, to become like him in all ways–in his life, in his death, and some day in his resurrection. This is what it means to become fully human and fully alive. We call this formation process spiritual not because it deals with what is immaterial but because it is the person of the Holy Spirit who is forming us into the image of Christ.

At City Refomed Church we believe that becoming a fully formed follower (human) of Jesus requires four things: growth in God’s Word, a life rooted in community, regular and active participation in Sunday worship, and engagement in God’s mission through service and witness. All of these together are essential for healthy and symetircal growth as a disciple of Jesus.
