Jesus said, “If you continue to follow my teaching, you are really my disciples and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31)
The word “disciple” simply means learner or follower. The church is to make disciples (Matthew 28:16-20) as we love one another (John 13:34-35). We often refer to these as Jesus’ Great Commission and Great Commandment.
Making disciples and loving one another should be at the center of everything we do in the New Testament church. A Christian disciple follows Jesus, becoming more and more like Him through doing life with other believers they trust and love in community.
Definition of Discipleship at COD: “Discipleship is intentional sharing of life, time, experience between 2-4 followers of Jesus in regular meetings that surround biblical teachings.”
