Who We Are
WE EXIST TO CONNECT PEOPLE TO LIVE THE LIFE OF A JESUS FOLLOWER
All people have aspirations that drive their lives. We have one Aspiration and that is to follow Jesus. Jesus said “Follow me!” When He spoke these words, what did He mean? He was not offering an invitation to a destination, rather it was an invitation to a relationship with a Person who would radically change one’s way of life.
What was true then is true today. Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship with Jesus which results in radical life change. Following Jesus is the heart of Christianity. As we study Jesus in the New Testament, we find that his life was all about relationships. First, his relationship with the Father, second, his relationship with his disciples, and third, his relationship with the people who didn’t know God at all.
So what does the life of a Jesus follower look like? Answer: relationships. At Aspire, we use three key words to describe these relationships…
A Jesus follower abides in Christ personally and daily.
A Jesus follower connects in community in large group and small group.
A Jesus follower shares in the mission locally and globally.
So how you deepen these three relationships and grow as a follower of Jesus? Answer: The same way you deepen any relationship—TIME. How do you invest your time as a Jesus follower to deepen your relationship with God, your relationship with other believers, and your relationship with the world? We believe there are four strategic ways that you and I can choose to invest our time that grows all three of these relationships:
Time spent daily alone in fellowship with God.
Time spent weekly gathering in worship with my church.
Time spent consistently in community with a small group from my church
Time spent annually going on mission locally and globally
We believe that values drive our decisions, and decisions shape our lives! Underneath our mission to connect people to live the life of a Jesus follower, we strongly value a few things you’ll see in every area of Aspire Church.
“Apart from God we can do nothing; through Him we can do all things.”
“Following Jesus is all about relationships.”
“We live life ready to make a difference in the lives of others.”
“We seek to join in God’s activity in Tucson, the West and the World.”
