Discipleship

/Discipleship
Jesus called us to “make disciples of all nations,” but what does that mean? We believe that our job is to partner with other Christians to help them learn and understand the Gospel so that they may grow in their relationship with Christ. Through this growth we see these “disciples” repeating this process over and over as they lead others to Christ teaching them to disciple others.
