Activate is the men’s discipleship ministry of Osterville Baptist Church. We believe that Christ has called every man to pursue mature manhood (Col. 1:28). This is the ultimate goal. Men seek their identity and purpose in many different ways. For some, it is their success at work. For others, it’s their identity as a husband or father. Others pour themselves into some hobby like golf or fishing. As important as any of these things might be in their own respect, Christ call for you to pursue mature manhood is the only way to realize who you are as a man and why you were created!
What does mature manhood mean? Mature manhood is concerned with submitting the whole man to lordship of Jesus Christ. We learn his will for every aspect of our life by intentionally sitting under His Word—the Scriptures—given to us by the Holy Spirit (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21). As we do this, we are shaped and transformed into the likeness of His glory (1 Cor. 3:18).
So why meet together? The Scriptures teach that we are most challenged to grow in Christ in the context of community—that is, men pursuing the same goal of mature manhood together. Together, we are challenged to do hard things, confess sin, give more of our time and energy to Christ’s mission, and strive to be godly in the various spheres of our lives (home, work, church, community, etc.).
If you are ready to go deeper in your walk with Christ, then Activate doesn’t just welcome you—it’s calling you! It’s time to pursue the most important things in this life. No more excuses—it’s time to Activate!
