On January 6 and 13, Pastor Kit introduced our theme for 2019 “Be a Disciple. Make a Disciple” (You can listen to these sermons here and here). Jesus’ final command to his disciples before ascending to heaven was to “make disciples” (Matt 28:19); therefore, disciple making is the foundational mission of the church. This year we want to reaffirm our commitment to this most important task and equip our church to participate in Christ’s mission.
Disciple making begins with the fact that I must be a growing disciple myself. Therefore, we want to challenge every member of Life Point to pursue discipleship by growing into a mature follower of Christ. We also want to equip each member with the necessary tools for pursuing this goal.
As each believer matures, God commands us to bring others along—to make disciples. Therefore, we want to challenge every member of Life Point to participate in the process of making disciples. We also want to help each member find his or her role in disciple making and give them the tools to fulfill this role.
We are excited to see how God will grow us into a better disciple making church this year.
