Discipleship & Nurture

The Goal of Ephesians 4 Church (E4C) Program

The objectives of D&N ministry are to establish relevant and faith stretching training for all segment of the community in basic Christianity as well as specific ministry training for core interest groups to build a genuine disciple making Church. The Discipleship and Living Essentials programs seek to provide all members of LHMC with foundational truth and discipleship to encourage consistent walk with God and faith in Christ. The intend of the courses are designed to provide continual education in Christian Living and focus on being an effective witness for Christ to build LHMC towards an Ephesians 4 Church, i.e. “to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”

Why Discipleship Essentials Program

Discipling is important yet few are disciple. Many of us grow up spiritually by self study or following another believer, rather than being “follow up” or discipled. Often we allow new believers to grow naturally themselves, contrary to what Christ has mandated us in Matt 28 to make disciples, helping them learn to obey the commandments of God. Discipling is relationship centric and not teaching centric, it is not just teaching lesson, rather through building relationship we can help believers learn how to obey Christ in love and not through rules and laws. This is an inter-dependent and not co-dependant relationship, and we are able to learn and add inputs to each other lives as we spent time together as discipler and disciples.

Everyone can be a discipler, for unlike teaching which is a spiritual gift, discipling is for every believer, we are called to make disciples in our natural living domain. You can disciple another believer when you have benefited from this discipleship process. The intended goal is not building uniformity because each one is unique and different; rather we want to build conformity to the likeness of Christ through discipleship. Through Discipleship Essentials program we can become true disciples of Christ

Why Living Essentials Program

Not only are we called to make disciples, Jesus also want us to be the salt and the light to the world we live in. Like pre-believers we are not isolated from the issues of life: work problems, health issues, marital and family conflicts, wealth management etc. To be effective as the salt and the light we need to have a clear understanding on what is God’s answer and solution, and not conform and follow the world’s standard, thus able to know God’s good, perfect and acceptable will. Through Living Essentials program we can experience a life of victory, filled with impacting testimonies, and pre-believers would want to come and find such answers and solutions.
