Recommended Resources for The Mission Church
As we journey together towards becoming a disciple-making church, I hope you’ll find this page, as well as the rest of the resources on this site, useful and edifying to your walk with Jesus.
Our definition of a disciple comes from Matthew 4:19 which says: “And He said to them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men’”.
Therefore, a disciple is someone who is following Jesus, being transformed by Jesus, and joining Jesus in His mission.
As you process your walk with Jesus, here are a few basic diagnostic questions to ask yourself:
How’s my “following” going? Am I fully surrendered to Jesus’ agenda for my life? What areas need to be brought into submission?
What areas of my life need transformation? What is God teaching me from His Word this week? What am I going to do about it? Who can I share this journey with?
Am I engaged in Jesus’ mission to make disciples of all nations? Who am I investing my life in? Who can I pray for this week that needs to know Jesus? Am I joining Jesus in His mission - or am I engaged in “my” mission?
If I can answer any questions or help encourage you in any way, please let me know!
