OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES Think big. Start small. Build deep. Kindred-spirit friendship is the key to a unity movement. The Kingdom of God is larger than our own local church. The church rises and falls based on its leadership. Size does not measure health. Disciplemaking is the key to the long-term health of the Church.There is no success without successors. Life-change happens best in small groups. A church that does not reach out will rust out. Spiritual transformation precedes spiritual multiplication. Spiritual growth takes time. We reproduce after our own kind.
