There is no doubt that there is enough evil on the earth; what we need is a huge injection of Good from the heart of God. This is why the church exists- to bring more of Heaven to Earth and to see more of Earth go to Heaven. Our Vision is to not just get by in this life but to unmistakably influence our world for good and for God.
Growth is a natural result of a relationship with God. As we grow closer to Him, we are changed into His image. That's the only way to achieve real, lasting change. It's a process that continues throughout our lives as we grow in faith, love, maturity and knowledge.
