A tree is nothing without its roots. The roots provide nourishment, strength, and life for the tree. The same ideas can be applied to us and our walk with God. The roots are the beginning to Elm Street's discipleship process. ESCC believes that there are three items that are vital for you to begin your journey towards being a mature disciple.

The first is this, you NEED to be coming to church on a weekly basis. For the same reason a sapling needs water, so a new believer needs Church.

The second goes along with the first, going to church and not participating in service will not get you very far. When you come to church, anticipate God's word. Be there to deepen your faith by being receptive to God in church services.

Lastly, be encouraged in your faith by the church family. Christians are not meant to do this alone!
