Teaching Others to Know, Love, Trust and Follow Him
WHAT IS DISCIPLESHIP?
As a church we are striving to learn how to obediently follow Jesus with our lives while teaching others to do the same. (Matt. 28:18-20) We seek to do this by pairing up older, more mature believers with younger believers (I Corinthians 11:1, Philippians 3:17, Hebrews 13:7, II Timothy 1:13, Titus 2:1-8) so that our faith can be strengthened. Our hope is to pursue fellowship, accountability, knowledge and application with each other so that we can better understand and enjoy the God we serve. It is our hope that as believers are discipled within our church, they will be equipped to model discipleship in the lives of other individuals so that we are regularly producing more and more committed followers of Christ.
In order to ensure that disciples are MADE we encourage our church members to meet for the following purposes.
- M - Marriage Development: There is much to learn from meeting with couples who have loved faithfully and parented responsibly.
- A - Accountability: Our members meet in groups to fight sin and stay encouraged in their pursuit of Christian joy.
- D - Discipleship: We meet to teach others how to grow personally by feeding themselves through regular time in God's Word.
- E - Equipment: As we raise up mature members in our church who desire to serve, we provide training to equip them to do the work of the ministry effectively.
