We Build People is a nationally endorsed, four-step process that invites
participants to take a journey toward spiritual maturity. It is built
on four core values.
Every person has the right to a presentation of the gospel at
his or her level of understanding.
Every person needs a biblical moral compass to guide and protect
him/her throughout life.
Every believer has unique gifts to be developed and used to
strengthen the church.
Every believer has a purpose in advancing the global mission
of the church of Jesus Christ.
"The church that utilizes We Build People is committed to helping
believers grow in every aspect of their spiritual lives," says
LeRoy Bartel, commissioner on discipleship. "These churches believe
the biblical purposes for the church ought to be reflected in each Christians
life. A healthy believer is a believer who in each area is growing and
is then helping someone else to grow."

First base represents a churchs commitment to include spiritually
hungry people and help them commit their lives to Christ. At second
base the church works to instruct believers, helping them to develop
a working knowledge of the Bible, build godly habits and experience
the life-transforming baptism in the Holy Spirit. A churchs third
base task is to involve believers by helping them discover God-given
gifts and train for ministry. With the cycle complete at home base,
a church will invest believers and help them think through their lifes
calling with the goal of sharing their faith with others.
Assemblies of God churches are not focused on merely constructing buildings,
or simply building attendance, but building healthy Christians. First,
they have an intentional strategy in place to reach out and embrace
people who have not come to Christ yet and give them an opportunity
to hear the life-changing gospel of Jesus and receive Him as their Savior.
With We Build People, they also have a definite, intentional process
in place to help believers grow and become vibrant, reproducing Christians.
