Spiritual Growth

Spiritual growth is a process by which we are transformed to become more like Christ, and more of whom God created each of us to be.  Essential to this process is knowing Christ and making Him known. We refer to this as being cross relational. The cross has two axes, one vertical and one horizontal. Developing our connection to God focuses on the vertical axis, while loving and serving others involves the horizontal axis. All of our events and programs at HRC are designed to propel us along in this process.

Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 2:10; Matthew 22:36-40.
