Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
~ Matthew 28:19-20
To make disciples of Christ and equip the saints to carry out the Great Commission.
If you were to disciple one person for a year, there would be two of you at the end of the year. Then, if both of you disciple one person each, there would be four growing, reproducing Christians at the end of year two.
If the four of you, each prayerfully, continued this lifestyle of discipleship, you could influence the world for Christ in one brief lifetime!
"...and you will be My witnesses... ACTS 1:8"
Discipleship is a key factor in creating an atmosphere in which lost people are drawn to life. In order to accomplish this, we desire to see all people in this ministry develop their full potential and serve with excellence using their unique gifts. Members of the Discipleship Team commit to disciple at least one person a year. They spend intentional time with them, teaching and helping them to grow in their walk with Christ.
Discipleship is living every day to the glory of God, in front of other people, and inviting them to join you on the journey. It is a lifestyle filled with relationships, and a life of pouring out yourself for others. We believe Discipleship is a purposeful and relational endeavor.
In order to fully respond to the Great Commission, we first need to be disciples of Jesus. Then, we too must make disciples. This means we need to spend consistent time investing in relationships with other believers by letting them challenge and encourage us in our walk with God. We need each other in this journey. Together we can become wholehearted disciples of Jesus and grow in our relationship with God.
