Growing Grace

March 13-14, 2015

To be a Christian is to be a disciple. Jesus said that anyone who would be a disciple of Christ must “deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Mark 8:34). Nobody, however, does this perfectly. All Christians face struggles and obstacles in their walk with Christ. And yet, the New Testament calls disciples of Jesus to “grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).

At Renown 2015, you will hear from speakers R. Albert Mohler Jr., Dan DeWitt and Rick Holland about what it means to grow in grace as a disciple of Jesus Christ. So come for a great time of fellowship and worship with other like-minded believers, learn what it means to abide in the true vine and live as a fruit-bearing disciple of Christ.
