“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them inthe name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” – Matt 28:19

What is a disciple?
A disciple is someone that follows Jesus. By this, we mean that their whole life grows out of living the practices and teachings of Jesus, the Master of Life.

Here are some discipleship values that can bring more clarity:

  • We make disciples of Jesus, not ourselves.
  • We show and tell the commands of Jesus through an intentional whole-life of following Him. Jesus cares about your job, your marriage, your friendships, how you sleep, how you speak, how you drive, etc. Discipleship is not just a moment or a meeting, but a life of following.
  • “It takes a village”-  The entire “body” of Christ is His church and follows him together. This is not a journey in individualism. We believe that it takes the entire body of Christ to make disciples. In each discipleship relationship there will be someone leading you – but their leadership will point you to Christ and not themselves.
  • Disciples make disciples who make disciples. As in nature, and in a family unit, maturity is shown by reproduction and multiplication. The Great Commission (Matthew 28) is a command and not a suggestion.
