Rule of Life
Surrendering to Structures that Can Shape Your Life
A rule of life is an ancient practice that has been used by Christian communities for more than 2,000 years. Simply, a Rule of Life is a conscious, written statement of Spiritual goals and guidelines designed to keep God and his commands in the center of your life in everything that you do. It serves as a personal mission statement and provides accountability to help you attain the walk with God that you desire.
The purpose of this rule is to unite us as a community committed to whole-heartedly following after God. As the psalmist says in Psalm 42:1, “As the deer pants for the streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.” Likewise, we seek to be a community actively seeking God, making him central in our families, our leadership and our ministry. The Rule of Life creates a framework, a trellis, for continued growth as a daughter or son of God. It does not constrain or scold you; instead, it protects, nourishes and grows you toward the person God intends you to be.
