We disciple at Revive Church by becoming more like Jesus through studying and living out the teachings in God’s Word, the Bible. We do this corporately through our Groups ministries and individually in our personal Bible study and prayer.
Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). The Bible, which is unlike any other book in the world, tells us about God’s character and mission. Disciples are life-long students, who earnestly desire to be more and more like Jesus as they study and live out the Bible’s teachings. Every follower of Jesus is also a disciple of Jesus.
Training disciples to become strong and mature leaders in the body of Christ, in the church of Christ, and in their communities. Through those who are trained up in discipleship, God will grow the church from the inside out (Acts 2:38-47) - we are the church. These strong leaders will share God’s word throughout communities, and train other disciples to grow and serve as well.
John 13:34-35: "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you; that you also love one another. By this, all will know that you are my disciples; if you have love for one another.”
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 - Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
1 Corinthians 6:15-17 - Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
