What are the Three Relationships?

Here at Faith Church, our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We strive to become more and more like Jesus in all aspects of our lives.

During his life, Jesus had three main relationships—one with God, one with people within his faith (his “church”), and one with people outside of his faith (the world). Learning how Jesus lived in these three relationships helps us understand what a disciple–or student–of Jesus is.

We believe that followers of Jesus grow in these three primary relationships to live a full life of faith: their relationships with God, the Church, and the World. Each relationship is expanded into five “rhythms.” As we develop and deepen these three relationships in life rhythms, we grow as followers of Jesus and bring others along as well.

3R at Faith Church

There are resources to help you get started with the Three Relationships. Whether you’re just learning about Jesus or have followed him your whole life, there’s room for everyone to grow to become more like Jesus.

You can get started with the Three Relationships and the life rhythms that help us to grow in each one by taking the 3R Spiritual Health Assessment. It takes about 15 minutes, and it’s NOT a test–just a way of seeing areas of your life where you might grow in your relationship with God, with the Church, and with the world. (Click here to take the assessment!)

After you take the assessment, we encourage you to take steps to learn how to live and grow in these three relationships the way Jesus did. You can do this by participating in a 3R Small Group, attending a 3R Workshop, and learning through your own personal study.
