The Life Development Process is illustrated by using baseball diamond. Each base represents a different class that helps people in the church grow in their relationship with Christ. First base is the membership class. Second base is the maturity class. Third base is the ministry class. And home base is the missions class.

Life wasn't meant to be lived standing still. We should always be moving, learning, and growing as people and as followers of Jesus.

But it could be as simple as establishing a few key habits in your life to get you on the right track.

Five measure of spiritual Growth
by Rick Warren

The five measurements of spiritual growth: knowledge, perspective, conviction, skills, and character.

These five levels of learning are the building blocks of spiritual maturity. Any strategy designed to help people reach spiritual maturity must incorporate all five to be effective.

Knowledge of the Word

To begin building a spiritual growth curriculum you need to ask two questions:

1. What do people already know?
2. What do they need to know?

Perspective

Perspective is understanding something because you see things from a larger frame of reference. It is the ability to perceive how things are interrelated and then judge their comparative importance.

In a spiritual sense, it means seeing life from God's point of view. In the Bible, the words "understanding," "wisdom," and "discernment" all have to do with perspective.

Conviction

Your convictions include your values, commitments, and motivations.  Howard Hendricks states conviction is something you will die for!" Our convictions determine our conduct. They motivate us to act in certain ways. Conviction helps us be diligent in continuing to grow spiritually.

Skills

A skill is an ability to do something with ease and accuracy. You develop a skill—not by listening to a lecture—but by practice and experience. In the Christian life, there are certain skills you must develop in order to mature: Bible study skills, ministry skills, witnessing skills, relational skills, time management skills, and many others.

Skills are the "how-tos" of spiritual growth. Knowledge and perspective are concerned with knowing. Conviction and character are concerned with being. Skills are related to doing.

Character

Christ-like character is the ultimate goal of all Christian education. To settle for anything less is to miss the point of spiritual growth. We are to "… become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." (Eph. 4:13)
