OUR PROCESS

Helping people become disciples is not a new concern for churches. It has been the goal all along. Developing a process of discipleship within the church structure, however, is an issue that has been terribly neglected.

In Matthew 28:19 Jesus instructed us to, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit." (ESV)

We believe a simple structure must be in place to guide and direct people in the discipleship process. One tool we have in place to measure peoples journey in the process is our definition of a disciple. From this definition flows the entire process of discipleship. It is our desire that all programs and ministries of the church fit under the umbrella of this definition.

As a church we believe... "A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ who is motivated by love to be like Him."

Therefore, you demonstrate that you are a disciple when you:

FOLLOW

  • Luke 9:23 - And he said to all, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." (ESV)
  • GROW

  • Mark 4:8 - "And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold." (ESV)
  • SERVE

  • 1 Peter 4:10 &11 - As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (ESV)
  • So there you have it. This is a snapshot of our DNA. We hope this short explanation helps you better understand who we are. If, after reading this, you feel the Holy Spirit drawing you be a part of our discipleship process then we encourage you to come and join us at one of our weekend services.
