About Us

Mission Statement

The Tapestry Church believes that when Jesus said this he wasn’t only giving us a command, but also model of ministry. That is to say, discipleship isn’t just another ministry we add to the church. Rather, every ministry of the church should have Christ- discipleship as the primary objective. The desire within any given ministry then, is not to try to maintain or grow itself but to be the soil in which disciples of Jesus can be nurtured to grow and released to disciple others.

Jesus Himself lived this life of discipleship in that he established a small group as his first ministry. He called a group of twelve; nurturing and planting deeply into their lives, even though he had many other followers. In the midst of teaching the crowds, healing the sick and performing miracles, his disciples were always with Him.

We believe discipleship is vital to the health and life of the church precisely because of what Jesus said and how he lived. It is the only way we grow in Christ; becoming his hands and feet to others. We believe that as we grow more like Christ through discipleship, the desire to be disciple-makers will grow in us. As a result

Matthew 28:19-20

we will desire to help others grow in their faith. The process of discipleship is not only the soil where our intimacy with Christ grows, but is the ground in which we participate in multiplying disciples and growing the church to thrive in its mission to the world.

However, we are not idealistic. We know that discipleship can bring along with it unhealthy comparison, self-righteousness, in-grouping and out-grouping, and even become an idol in itself. We need to actively pray and struggle against such pitfalls. One way to do that is to acknowledge that no matter where we are in our walk with Christ, we are all in the process of being transformed into His image. In other words, we all need Jesus, our great disciple-maker, his grace and the discipline of others.

At the Tapestry, our hope and aim is to cultivate a deep culture of discipleship. We desire to be a church that makes disciples who make disciples who make disciples and so forth. Through this process we desire to know Christ more, share Christ more, grow into the character of Christ more, and draw Christ nearer to the waiting world.
