We believe a Gospel Community on Mission (Missional Community) is the primary structure for making disciples.
Disciples of Jesus increasingly submit to him in all of life (worship), are being changed by him (new identity), obey him and teach others to do the same (multiplication). Discipleship is the process of bringing all of life under the lordship and empowering presence of Jesus Christ.
In order to accomplish the mission of making disciples we must create environments where life on life, life in community and life on mission can occur. Life on life allows for visibility and accessibility. We see each other’s lives in the everyday stuff so that people know what it looks like to follow Jesus in all of life and we can assess whether people are growing in discipleship. Life in community ensures that a disciple looks more like Jesus. One on one discipleship will lead to a disciple looking like the one who discipled them. Community discipleship will lead to disciples looking more like Jesus as he works through his body. And Life on Mission both reveals areas of life that need gospel-led repentance and faith as well equip people how to make disciples who make disciples.
We believe that a Missional Community is the best structure and environment for disciple-making.
