Disciple Bible Studies
Ephesians 4:12 says "to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ." This describes beautifully the purpose of DISCIPLE. The word "disciple" means "one who follows." The DISCIPLE bible study is designed to develop Christian leaders in the local church as we learn together what it means to follow Jesus. DISCIPLE is developed with the idea that people in the church like you and me are hungry for the word of God. This thirty-four week long bible study is an in-depth approach at studying what the bible means from the time the words were written and what it means for us today. Not only does DISCIPLE provide nourishment for the individual, it builds more effective leaders within the life of the church.
You might be asking, "Is DISCIPLE for me?" If you are seeking to follow Jesus, then the answer is "yes"! If you are willing to submit yourself to studying the scriptures and be changed, then the answer is "yes"! If you are ready to bring your own experiences and struggles to scripture, then the answer is "yes"! If you are interested in learning more about the biblical languages and what biblical scholars have learned over the centuries, then the answer is "yes"! If you are ready to be part of a small group, then the answer is "yes"! If you are open to committing yourself to daily reading and studying of the Word of God, then the answer is "yes"! If you are open to meeting once a week with others as you grow together, then the answer is "yes"! If you are prepared to sacrifice one morning or night a week, then the answer is "yes"! If you are longing to grow spiritually, then the answer is "yes"!
