Jesus commanded the church to “Make Disciples!” in Matthew 28:19-20. With that in mind, my staff and I have been working to try and figure out what our process for making disciples as a church should look like! We have not even got close to the process part yet! We began by trying to answer the question: “What is a disciple?” We wanted to answer this question so that even a non-disciple could understand. This is our rather lengthy definition:
A disciple is a person who has entered into a change relationship with God through Jesus and is in process of ongoing change to become more like Jesus everyday, who when confronted makes the choice to not sin, out of love for Christ and out of that love shows love to others by sharing the Gospel that has changed their life and eternity!
So what do you think? Do you have anything to add or take away? We really want to get serious about Northwood being disciples and making disciples! Thanks for your insight and prayer!
