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.
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.
