Discipleship

Timothy Swigart

Last week, we introduced some new language for our church. Specifically, we talked about "Up, In & Out." Up, In and Out relate to the reconciliation and restoration of the three relationships that were broken in the Fall. These relationships are our relationship with God (Up), our relationship with ourselves (In) and our relationship with others (Out).

Last week, we looked at Up - our relationship with God. How do we restore and reconcile our relationship with God as a church? Worship. We love God with all our heart, all our soul and all our mind (Matthew 22:37). When we look at the purposes for our church's existence, we begin with worship.

Tomorrow night, we'll look at In - our relationship with ourselves. How do we restore and reconcile our relationship with ourselves as a church? Discipleship. When we look at the purposes for our church's existence, discipleship is a primary purpose. We are to grow in Christ-like maturity. Easier said than done, right? Sure. But, our church is here to help you grow. We'll tackle some biblical passages that speak specifically of discipleship and look at our church's strategy for discipleship. You're not going to want to miss this!
