You are called to be more than a believer or fan of Jesus.
You are called to be His Disciple.

We believe to be a Christian is to be a disciple (follower) of Jesus. Our Savior has called each of us to enter a process of deepening in faith and maturity. This process lasts a lifetime. At Monterey, we focus on six biblical practices that help guide our spiritual journey: 

1) Bible Engagement with Passionate Prayer, (what we call a daily quiet time)
2) Wholehearted Worship (Faithful committed participation in Sunday Morning Gatherings)
3) Humble Service (Consistent and committed service to our Body and the larger community)
4) Joyful Generosity (Consistent and faithful with financial offerings, which are investments in the Kingdom of God) 
5) Discipleship through Community (consistent and committed participation in a small group)
 6) Outreach (Investing in the lives of those outside of a relationship with Christ and the Body of Christ and inviting them in) 

This process of spiritual growth happens in many ways in the course of life and through the ministry of the local church.  
(Matthew 28:16-20; 2 Timothy 2:1-7, John 8:31-32, John 15:1-8)


 OUR MISSION at Monterey Church is the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and our Discipleship Training is designed to encourage and equip the Church, one heart and one mind at a time, to fulfill the Great Commission.

At Monterey Church, our commitment to the spiritual practices of becoming a faithful Disciple and member of the Body are the same.  When we are faithfully and consistently following Jesus in the six areas below, the Holy Spirit transforms us to look more like our Creator.

Attendance of the Sunday gathering. 

"...not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." -Hebrews 10:25

Participation on a Serve Team or other service in the community. 

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” -Mark 10:45

Membership in a Discipleship Group.

"Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts."
- Acts 2:46

Generosity through tithes and financial offerings. 

"Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’ “In tithes and offerings. 9 You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." -Malachi 3:8-10

Time spent daily in prayer and reading/meditating on Scripture. 

"But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed." - Luke 5:16

Investing in and inviting those who are disconnected from God.

"We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God." -2 Corinthians 5:20
