ARE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST. 

GROWING UP PRACTICES


They have put
their faith in Jesus & His:

LIFE

DEATH

RESURRECTION 


They are saved by Jesus and commit their lives
to following Him.
 
They model their life after how Jesus lived his life.
 
They practice what He practiced.
 
They are taking NEXT STEPS for their life to look
more like His. 

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.

— JOHN 3:16-17


FIRST STEPS

BAPTISM

The first step of a disciple of Jesus is to practice what He practiced in Baptism. 

It is an outward symbol of what God has done in the life, heart, and spirit of His followers and naturally follows Salvation. 

For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith–and this is not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God.

– EPHESIANS 2:8

PARTNERSHIP

The next step is being committed to a group of other disciples. 

This means being part of a church. 

We call that commitment partnership. 

We refer to church members as partners because that word really helps define the idea of what church “membership” is all about. It’s not about gaining access to status or privileges the way that membership in a professional association or even a local gym describes. It’s about partnering with like-minded believers to build a community of faith.
