Grow

The mission of August Gate is to be disciples of Jesus who make more disciples who are growing to know, love, and follow Jesus together. This can only happen in the context of intentionally gospel-centered relationships where we are honest about our struggles, humble about our need, and hungry for grace!

{NOTE: For more info about joining a Gospel Community at August Gate, click HERE}

There are four possible postures toward the gospel and it’s helpful to evaluate where we are starting from so that we know where to invest and what would help us (and others) take the next step as we seek to know, love, and follow Jesus together.

Pre-Gospel
No knowledge of the gospel. The core need of those in this stage is to KNOW Jesus.

Anti-Gospel
Inaccurate knowledge of the gospel, negative view of the church/Christianity. The core need of those in this stage is to LOVE Jesus.

Pro-Gospel
Inaccurate knowledge of the gospel, positive view of the church/Christianity. The core need of those in this stage is to FOLLOW Jesus.

Gospel
Accurate knowledge of the gospel combined with saving faith in Jesus Christ. The core need of those in this stage is to GROW in Jesus.
