Our Discipleship Path
Jesus said, “…I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10 NIV). Our mission is to lead people to Discover, Develop, and Demonstrate this life with Jesus. Rather than trying to do this through an assortment of different programs, we have chosen to create a Discipleship Path designed to make your next steps in discovering, developing, & demonstrating life with Jesus clear and simple. We encourage each individual who is part of Locust Valley Chapel to:
Encounter God in a Worship Service
Grow in a Group
Serve on a Team
