Discipleship is the key ingredient to a thriving church. We are all----all----moving closer to Jesus. Hope doesn't believe in a "one size fits all" discipleship. Many churches would offer a pre-programmed class structure. Instead, we share life together in powerful and meaningful ways.
Secondly, the way in which discipleship is done speaks about the church's purpose in the world. Does the church run a "bounded" set? Come and see? Or, is everyone inside and outside the church membership following Jesus in a "centered" set?
At Hope, we are all striving towards Jesus. In that Hope, we have a variety of discipleship components that focus on BIBLE, POSTURE AND ACCOUNTABILITY, and developing HEALTHY LEADERS. Through these discipleship groups, we do service in and through Hope.
