Jesus describes a life of following Him with the image of a seed growing to produce a harvest. We desire that our lives would reflect this kind of growth and fruit - perhaps it seems slow at times, perhaps we are plagued by drought or storms - yet our hope is that more and more we are moving towards him and becoming like him. We believe that such growth isn't automatic, but comes to us graciously through learning from the Word of God, through prayer, and through the sacraments of the Church.
We believe that the message of the Bible is trustworthy for every generation. It is worth our effort to learn and understand what Jesus said and what it means for us today. But, this is not just an individual pursuit of knowledge; rather, we are committed to learning from Jesus together, sharing our thoughts, experiences and perspectives towards the goal of becoming more like Him.
