What is a disciple?
A disciple is simply a learner or a pupil. That means that we are all disciples. The question that must be answered is who or what is our teacher? Who or what are we devoted to or identified with? In Acts 2:42, we are told that the early church was, “devoted to the Apostles teaching.” Their devotion was directly connected to their learning and the gospel was at the heart of everything they learned.
So a disciple in the Christian sense is one who is devoted to Jesus, a learner of Jesus, a pupil of Jesus, and of course a reflection of Jesus. This happens when we depend on the power of the Spirit to keep the gospel at the center of our lives and live out the mission of the church.
What is discipleship?
Before Jesus ascended to take his place as the world’s true ruler, his final instructions were that His disciples “go and make disciples of all nations”. Therefore, it is our goal to help one another become disciple-making disciples. We define discipleship as the process where a Christian chooses, in obedience to Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, to invest their lives into the lives of others for the Glory of Jesus. A Christian chooses to depend on the power of the Holy Spirit to obey Jesus and to invest their lives in others. By this we together become learners and lovers of our Lord Jesus Christ.
