Discipleship and Nurture Ministry



The Bible is God’s main channel of communication with us. Through the Living Word He reveals His Plans, His Will, His Purposes, His Guidance, His Direction, His Love, His Grace ……. The Word brings Knowledge, Understand and Wisdom to all aspects of our lives: personal, family, study, market place and ministry. Thus it is important to let the Word of Christ richly dwell in us.

The objective of Discipleship & Nurture Ministry is to establish relevant and faith stretching training for our community. The curriculum is designed to provide continual education and focuses on increasing Biblical Literacy so that we can live as true Disciples of Christ.

Discipleship is important yet few believers are discipled. Many of us grow up spiritually by self-study or watching how another believer grow, rather than being discipled. Often we leave new believers to grow by themselves, even though Christ commanded us in Matt 28 to make disciples, teaching them to obey all His commandments. Discipling is not just teaching lessons, but building relationships that help believers obey Christ in love.

Everyone can be a discipler, for unlike the spiritual gift of teaching, discipling is for every believer. We are commanded to make disciples of all nations. You can disciple another believer when you have been discipled. The goal is not uniformity because each one is unique and different; but conformity to the likeness of Christ.
