DISCIPLESHIP: Helping People To Know, To Apply, And Be Effective With God’s word.
At Breath of Life Church, we seek to develop and train warriors to advance the Kingdom of God on this earth – one-on-one discipleship is one of the many ways we do this.
Our purpose in life is to be His disciples and live out the Great Commission. Jesus' desire is that people would get to know Him intimately, learn his ways, and choose to follow Him. He commanded us to make disciples with this statement: “Go therefore and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19–20)
A disciple is someone who loves, follows, and joins Jesus on His mission. Jesus did a great job at this, so we want to follow His example of how to make disciples.
At Breath Of Life, we make disciples following Jesus' model. We equip others to do the same by keeping our discipleship classes simple but relevant. We recognize that we’re on a beautiful journey of being refined by His Word and Spirit. This is a process from conversion, baptism, and learning about the ways of Jesus and how to follow Him daily— as well as teaching others how to also grow in spiritual maturity. We accomplish this together as a church body.
Here’s a short list of how:
Titus 2:4 — Older women are to train younger women.
Second Timothy 2:2 — Paul trained Timothy to train others to train others.
Ephesians 6:4 — Fathers are to train their children.
Matthew 28:20 — Missionaries are to teach the nations everything Jesus commanded.
First Peter 4:10 — All Christians are to use their gifts to serve others.
Acts 18:24–26 — Priscilla and Aquila, on the spur of the moment it seems, explained the way of God more accurately to Apollos.
become a discipleship mentor:
Many Christians think they have to go to seminary or have a higher education in order to disciple someone; the truth is that if you love Christ and follow Him you are called to disciple others. We want you to be fully equipped to do this, so we provide training for you.
As a discipleship mentor, you commit to being trained, meet with a mentee at least twice per month, and study and pray together over a designated period of time. The objective is to make disciples that make disciples.
The blessings that come from helping others learn to follow Christ are innumerable!
