Jesus commanded His
disciples to teach (or literally, “disciple”) all nations. We believe that since the expiration date He put on that command was “the end of the world”, He fully expects us to teach/disciple today. We also believe that for people to engage in discipleship, they should know what that
means. Jesus was clear with the twelve about the cost of discipleship and what was coming.
In an effort to follow Jesus’ model and the patterns of scripture, we have compiled some information here to give you an idea of what discipleship will look like. Granted, discipleship doesn’t happen in a 5 class program alone, rather this is simply one tool in an array of many. Outside of the basics of personal devotion (i.e., daily prayer and Bible reading), faithful attendance to services, and creating personal relationships with other members in the church; we also recommend the Growth Track program, one-on-one personal or home Bible studies (can be conducted anywhere), and small groups as various tools to help you get growing in your walk with God.
