Everyone knows that we’re supposed to go out and make disciples. But is your ministry actually doing it?
- Jesus envisioned a church full of disciple-makers. Matthew 28:19-20
- Disciple-makers have a heart for people outside the church.
- In a disciple-making church, the leaders are strategic about equipping people to minister. Ephesians 4:11-12
Matthew 28: 18Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
