When someone becomes a disciple of Jesus, it simply means that he has become his follower. Being a Disciple is trying to be more and more like Jesus in character and action.
WHAT DOES DISCIPLESHIP MEAN?
Church is not just about teaching and knowledge, church is a place where real life change happens. We believe discipleship happens in the context of relationships. It’s about spending time together to help each other understand God’s plan for our lives.
We don’t believe the church was meant to operate as a warehouse storing Christians in buildings, keeping them busy with endless programs and activities. We want to guide people to apply the words of the Bible and to live their faith outside of the four walls of the church building (James 1:22).
The Next Steps classes equip you to discover your God-given gifts and purpose. We offer a straight forward easily understood path to follow.
