Discipleship 101


We define Biblical discipleship as reproducing the ways, mission and character of Jesus in others.

Jesus commanded all who believe in Him to make disciples (students) as they go about life, immersing those students

in Jesus and teaching them how to obey everything that He commanded.

We know from Luke 14:26-27 the utter disdain that a disciple must have towards their own life, desires & ambitions.

Following Christ begins with obedience, the mandate of taking up our cross and discipleship.


Why Lifestyle Discipleship

We acknowledge that Biblical counseling, small group studies and corporate church gatherings are important fixtures in the life of every believer.

Yet making disciples is God’s method for bringing about transformation in the lives of individuals and our society.

During His three year ministry, Jesus spent about 90% of His time sharing life with His twelve disciples.

Following His death, burial & resurrection, the early church model of genuine fellowship remained a pillar of church life for 300 years.


What Can You Expect?

As a diverse gathering of believers, we desire to grow up into Jesus in all things.

We teach, equip and encourage believers to become disciple-makers who live out the Great Commission at home & in their communities
