    Every believer is called to be a disciple of Christ. It is up to us individually to heed the call to follow the Lord as His disciples.

    The Call to Discipleship Matthew 4:19 As much as it hurts to admit, I truly believe the church has failed miserably in one vital area of ministry. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s there was a concerted effort to reach unbelievers with the Gospel, and the church rose to the call to more

    Being a disciple of Christ requires a conscious, committed effort. We will never be effective disciples with a casual, unconcerned approach. It is a lifestyle we are called to commit ourselves unto.

    The Commitment to Discipleship Luke 9: 23-26 Let me begin by asking, how many Christians do you know? That is a difficult question isn’t it? Now it seems that everyone you talk to concerning the Lord has had some type of experience. Well, yes I’m a Christian; I was baptized and more

    Many initially are willing to follow the Lord, but fail to count the cost. Upon realizing the great sacrifice necessary to follow Him, many are unwilling to pay the price. We must count the cost and be willing to pay the price in service to the Lord.

    The Cost of Discipleship Luke 14: 25-33 I am certainly thankful for the free gift of salvation. Christ paid our sin debt, reconciling us to God in salvation. This gift is freely available to all who receive it by faith. Salvation is free, but our service to the Lord is costly. If we are more

  • 4. The Confidence In Discipleship

    Contributed on Jun 15, 2016

    We live in an age when most are not receptive to the Gospel. Many believers lack confidence in their ability to share their faith. How do we gain confidence to be an effective disciple and witness? The answer is in Christ alone.

    The Confidence in Discipleship John 15:7-11 If you have been with us for the past few weeks considering discipleship, you have realized following the Lord is not for the faint of heart or uncommitted. The Lord has spoken about denying ourselves, bearing our cross, and following Him. He spoke of more

  • 5. The Conditioning In Discipleship

    Contributed on Jun 15, 2016

    Many believers suffer "burn-out" or from lack of preparation. Like any other pursuit, if we are to be effective in service, we must make the proper preparations and condition ourselves spiritually.

    The Conditioning in Discipleship 1 Corinthians 9: 24-27 Over the past several weeks we have been discussing discipleship and what the Scripture reveals about being a disciple of Christ. I am convinced the Lord desires every believer to be a disciple, but discipleship is not immediate following more

  • 6. The Challenge Through Discipleship

    Being a genuine disciple of Christ is a very tall order. We are to live in such a way that reflects His character and grace. How is that possible? We must pattern our lives after Christ. We are challenged to imitate the Lord we serve.

    The Challenge through Discipleship 2 Timothy 1: 12-14 As we consider discipleship, and our responsibility to follow Christ while investing in others, the Lord Himself stands as the great example. He was fully surrendered to the Father’s will and spent much of His time investing in the more

  • 7. The Credibility In Discipleship

    Contributed on Jun 15, 2016

    Many are skeptical of the church because of perceived hypocrites. How do we obtain credibility in our witness to others? How do live and walk in such a way to be an effective witness? We must walk in Christ to possess the credibility we need.

    The Credibility in Discipleship Ephesians 5:1-2; John 13:34-35 We have spent several weeks discussing the importance and need for discipleship. In the Great Commission, Jesus commanded us to teach all nations to observe His teachings. In essence, those who follow Christ as His disciples are more

  • 8. The Command In Discipleship

    Contributed on Jun 15, 2016

    I fear many fail to consider the seriousness of Jesus' command to make disciples. As followers of Christ, we are all commanded to make other disciples. Thankfully, our Lord provided insight to His great command.

    The Command in Discipleship Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8 After several weeks of discussion and consideration, I hope to conclude our series on discipleship. Hopefully we have been enlightened regarding discipleship, having a greater knowledge of what is expected, and how to be better equipped as more
