What is a Disciple of Christ?A disciple is most simply defined as a life-long learner and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Where does discipleship begin?Discipleship begins with obedience to the Gospel by responding in faith to Jesus Christ alone for His righteousness and repenting of ones sins.
“Being a disciple of Christ, does not begin with something that we do. It begins with something Christ did!”
“Remember that our main purpose in this life is to be conformed into the image of Christ.”
What does Discipleship look like?The biblical way for discipleship to take place is through the local church. Following the teaching and instruction of Christ and being baptized is fundamental to being a Christ follower. The ministry of the ordinances (Baptism & Lord’s Supper) and the ministry of teaching primarily occur in and through the local church. But discipleship also takes place when disciples intentionally meet for the purpose to grow deeper in their love for and application of the gospel. This can take place at any number of places such as in the church building, coffee shops, in homes, as well as other places.
What is the goal of discipleship?The goal of discipleship is to be a disciple who is equipping and making other disciples who will equip and make other disciples.
How do we accomplish this as the body of Christ here at Broadway Baptist Church?
- By being a covenant member of this local body who is seeking to live out the one another’s of Scripture and observe the two ordinances of the church.
- By submitting to the teaching & preaching of BBC.
- By being connected with a small group of believers who are studying the Word, applying the Word, and worshiping Christ together in accordance to the Word of God.
