City Centre takes Matthew 28:18-20 to heart! One of the graphics that we use to visualize the 5 Habits that growing Christians should have is below!

HABITS

These are the habits all believers should have in their lives and at City Centre we want to help you develop these habits as you grow in your faith.
 
God Time:

Gather Time:
Time spent weekly gathering in worship with my church
 
Grow Time:
Time spent consistently growing in community with a small group 
 
Give Time:
Time spent regularly using my gifts to serve others 
 
Go Time:
Time spent faithfully sharing my hope in Jesus
 
 
The Principles that Connect Our Habits:
Christian Living as the Church
Text: 1 Peter 2:9-12
 
1.   Our Identity: Who we are in Christ
       ~ Chosen
       ~ Royal
       ~ Holy
       ~ Treasured Possessions
      Identity connects our knowing God (God Time) to

      worshiping God (Gather Time)

 
2.   Our Character: Who we become in Christ
       ~ Abstain
       ~ Wage War
       ~ Our Conduct
       ~ Spoken Against
      Character connects our worshiping (Gather Time) and
      growing (Grow Time)   
 
3.   Our Relationship: Who we are together
       ~ a Chosen Race
       ~ a Royal Priesthood
       ~ a Holy Nation
       ~ a people of His own Possession
      Relationship connects our growing (Grow Time) to serving

      (Go Time) 

 
4.   Our Mission: What we do with Christ
       ~ Proclaim
       ~ Sojourners
       ~ Exiles
       ~ See Your Good Deeds
      Mission connects serving to reaching the lost (Go Time)
