Roadmap for Discipleship
The mission of the Utica church of Christ is all about helping people grow. People should be growing in their relationships with God and with one another. They should grow in spiritual maturity, capacity to serve and their influence in the world. Christ established His church so that we’d work together with Him as our head to grow.
