Rooted & Established


I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,  so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,  may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,  and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:16-19)

Being rooted in God's love: Loving God and Loving Others is an ongoing journey. There is no magic formula that helps you get it right. Becoming rooted, like anything worth having, takes patience and discipline. Quite honestly, it looks different for every person. The reason for this is simple: God made you uniquely with unique gifts for a unique purpose in your unique place for this specific time. The leadership of Campbellsville Christian Church wants to walk alongside you in your journey. We have created personal spiritual development goals based on what we call the 6 Expressions of God's love: Study, Prayer, Stewardship, Discipleship, Community, and Service. 

As a supplement to that, we have created a self-evaluation for you to help you evaluate your progress on your journey. It is completely anonymous, unless you want to receive feedback from myself or one of the staff for input or guidance into your life. If that's the case, simply include your email address. These evaluations are comprised of 7 questions each. You can find the evaluations below by clicking on the corresponding Expression of Love below:


Loving God:
STUDY
PRAYER
STEWARDSHIP

Loving Others:
DISCIPLESHIP
COMMUNITY
SERVICE

We are so excited to see what God will do in the lives of His people who are committed to be "rooted in God's love." Again, we don't strive to be "rooted" to draw attention to ourselves or anything we've done, but to the only One who matters, Jesus Christ. It all rolls back to our mission: to lead people to Jesus Christ, and a growing relationship with Him.
