The Ministry of Faith Formation at Myers Park Baptist Church cultivates lifelong spiritual growth opportunities that serve people throughout their lives, including adults, children, and youth.
We are a people on a journey of faith. Not everyone starts the spiritual journey at the same place or in the same way. Our rich and varied learning pathways are designed to nourish people in body, mind, and spirit, so that every person can be communally formed, theologically informed, and spiritually transformed.
- Form- we value connectedness that leads us deeper into life with God and with one another.
The wisdom of community is essential in creating space where spiritual friendship can thrive. We nurture, care and encourage each other through the challenges and joys of life.
- Inform—we value lifelong learning where all people can wrestle with the paradoxes and promises of our faith.
When it comes to faith, we believe that the mind is a terrible thing to waste. We seek to learn the foundational narratives of our faith; to help persons encounter the bible stories and a variety of scholarly teachings; to encourage seekers to decide for themselves the meaning and meaningfulness of scripture.
- Transform—we value growth through following the wisdom of Jesus that leads to becoming better lovers of God, self, and others. Our desire is to turn information and spiritual perception into transformation. The beauty and power of faith is found as grace makes it possible to actually follow the teachings of Christ---living them into reality with integrity, gratitude and generosity of spirit.
