From the beginning of Christianity, the natural overflow of being a disciple of Jesus has always been to make disciples of Jesus. "Follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men" (Matt. 4:19). This was a promise: Jesus would take His disciples and turn them into disciple makers. And this was a command: He called each of His disciples to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey Him (Matt. 28:19-20). From the start, God's design has been for every single disciple of Jesus to make disciples who make disciples who make disciples until the gospel spreads to all peoples.
Yet we have subtly and tragically taken this costly command of Christ to go, baptize and teach all nations and mutated it into a comfortable call for Christians to come, be baptized and listen in one location...
At Pointe North, we define a disciple as someone who:
• IS FOLLOWING CHRIST
• IS BEING CHANGED BY CHRIST
• IS COMMITTED TO THE MISSION OF CHRIST
True discipleship is a process that repeats itself over and over but we know that not everyone is in the same place of the process. We have created several environments where you, or anyone, can enter into biblical discipleship:
- Men's/Women's Groups
- Home Groups
- Roots Classes
- Weekly Worship Services
- Starting Pointe Classes
- Baptism Classes
- Financial Classes
- Membership Classes
- Group Leader Trainings
- Ministry Leadership Development
For more information on any of these environments, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call the church office at 843.258.1199 or stop by the Help Desk this weekend.
