"You, who were dead in your sins, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our sins"
Our spiritual life begins with our relationship to God through Jesus. Faith in Jesus is not a mere belief, but rather a deeply held conviction that honors and keeps His Words. He claimed His divinity, His power to forgive sins, His ability to cleanse and change our hearts. Faith in Him receives and acts upon these truths - and it is this kind of faith in His Words that makes us fully alive.
"We are to grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ."
We grow into Christ's likeness through our connection to Him by communicating to Him through prayer, by obeying His Word, and by loving His family. This is where we develop deeply held convictions - beliefs that integrate into behavior. We begin the pathway of being fully mature when Christ's words begin to shape our character, lifestyle, and decisions.
"Go and make disciples of all nations... teaching them to observe all that I commanded you."
The life of a Christ-follower doesn't stop with personal beliefs or private character. It continues into the mission that Christ has called His church and finding our place in that vast work. He has given us gifts, talents, and skills to expand the kingdom of God. Whether through serving or speaking, giving or leading, listening or ministering, each member has a place to contribute and is needed for the whole to succeed.

Our family ministry is designed to strengthen families through an inter-generational approach that brings together children, youth and parents. We believe that equipping parents to be the spiritual leaders of their family is the most effective way to develop the next generation.
While still providing age specific programs for Children, Middle School, High School and College, our emphasis is on drawing generations together through events that champion the parents’ role as primary disciple-makers.
Serving others - whether through a formal ministry or on your own - is a great way to express your gratitude for what Jesus Christ did on the cross. These acts of service are necessary for building a healthy community, a healthy church body, and a great way to spread the good news to the wounded, hurting and lost of this world.
The ministries at Linworth Road Church are an outlet for your service and your God-given spiritual gifts. Whether you want to help welcome people on a Sunday morning, have a passion for children, or wish to take the gospel to the nations, let us help you find a place where you can best serve.
