An Overview of Discipleship

Date: Sunday, April 07, 2019
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

An Overview of Discipleship on Sunday April 7th in the auditorium at 6:00 p.m. led by Bro. Eddie.  Everyone is Welcome!


Discipleship, in the Christian sense, means to follow Jesus Christ. Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible gives this description of a disciple: "Someone who follows another person or another way of life and who submits himself to the discipline (teaching) of that leader or way."

Everything involved in discipleship is spelled out in the Bible, but in today's world, that path is not an easy one. Throughout the Gospels, Jesus tells people to "Follow me." He was widely accepted as a leader during his ministry in ancient Israel, large crowds flocking around to hear what he had to say.

However, being a disciple of Christ called for more than just listening to him. He was constantly teaching and gave specific instructions on how to commit to discipleship.
