Our “Field Guide” is a common way to talk about our spiritual growth and development. It helps us by having a visual so we can see next “Faith Steps”. Our schools have progressive curricula to move us from 1st grade to 2nd grade and into High School. We, as Christians, know that the Holy Bible is our “map” and “curriculum,” but there are 66 books and a lot more to being a 21st Century Christian than Adam or Paul talked about in Genesis or the Pauline Letters. Thus, we have created a “Field Guide” for our “Discipleship Pathway” to lead us from point “A” in our spiritual lives to point “B” in our spiritual lives.
You will notice that it is organized into four sections. These are four components of our Christian lives that you hear our preachers and leaders refer to often: Worship, Discipleship, Missions, and Evangelism. Disciples of Jesus Christ are continuously growing and functioning in all four of these areas of our Christian live.
