Our greatest goal here at Amity Bible Church besides helping you to know God is helping you to grow in your relationship with His son, Jesus. This growth leads to spiritual maturity and discovery of the life He intended for you – which is following Him and becoming like Him. In experiencing maturity, it often helps to see and understand what it looks like to grow in Christlikeness. As committed believers, our transformation should be marked by internal, spiritual yet visible signs.

Amity believes there are thirty essentials – that is ten essential beliefs, ten essential virtues, and ten essential practices that characterize a person who is committed to God and is increasingly growing in their love for Him and others.
These essentials are best summed into knowing what we need to know, being who we need to be, and doing what we need to do as His disciples.

Stewards at Amity commit to becoming fully devoted followers of Christ by understanding and growing in the following
30 Essentials of The Committed Life.
