The Most Effective Form of Discipleship

Many claim that discipleship includes most everything we do in church. I would agree that this statement is true in many evangelical churches; anything that helps believers grow to become like Christ is part of the discipleship process.

But if there had been…See More

The…See More

"I took a group all the way through it and it took about two years. It is very good and I would recommend it. However, I think it is better to start with the Growing in Christ (13 lesson series) I don't think there is anything better for new…"

The Commission Explained: What Discipleship is Not

Matthew 28:16–20 has been misunderstood and misinterpreted by many. To better understand what Jesus is saying in this passage, let’s first talk about what he is not commanding us to do.

         Almost every sermon I have ever heard preached on the Great Commission treats Christ’s words as a command to share one’s faith or to become a missionary. Yet these interpretations water down Christ’s original purpose for the Great Commission. The command…
