Be a disciple • Make disciples
Jesus Christ calls you to a new life, clothes you with Himself, commissions you with a purpose, and empowers you to fulfill that purpose—to follow Him as His disciple and to live for Him as a disciplemaker.

What is disciplemaking?
Disciplemaking is the full process of seeing people come to faith in Christ and grow in Him while at the same time equipping them to go back and help others repeat the process.
Disciplemaking is — an intentional, relational process flowing from a love for God and love from God for people.
Disciplemaking is — done within your homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, and churches.
Disciplemaking is — an intentional, relational lifestyle of building relationships with those around you who need to know Jesus or need to know Him better.
Disciplemaking is — establishing new Christians in the basics of the faith, then helping them to go out and do the same with their peers.
Disciplemaking is — by faith…in your personal life and church life…at any age or stage of life…along any stage of your Christian growth…trusting in God's Spirit to make it happen.
