What is the goal?
To help Christ-followers at Coral Hill evaluate their personal commitment to the task of disciple-making, which by definition includes:
Becoming more like Jesus as His disciple
Sharing the Gospel intentionally with others
Investing in the discipleship process of others
Being accountable to other Christ-followers in our local church
Loving one another as a faithful member of the Lord’s church at Coral Hill
In addition, this initiative will serve as a practical guide towards greater faithfulness in the task of disciple- making.
Being a disciple of Jesus always involves making other disciples. In fact, Jesus himself said that making disciples is what proves we are His disciples. “By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.” John 15:8 ESV
Who should be disciple-makers?
Every follower of Jesus is commanded to make disciples. “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’ “ Matthew 28:18-20 ESV
Our [dmi] students will help students evaluate their growth as a disciple over the next year asking four primary questions:
Am I faithfully gathering with our local church to worship God through singing, praying and hearing His Word preached?
Am I consistently connecting in a small group?
Am I intentionally investing in the discipleship process of another person?
Am I currently in the process of reading God’s Word (in its entirety) for myself?
