In Colossians 1:10, Paul tells the church, the followers of Christ: “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”
Helping people to “walk worthy of the Lord” in daily living is the goal of the Discipleship Ministry of First Baptist Church. From our Sunday small groups to our Wednesday discipleship opportunities, the desire is to help one another "walk worthy."
Our Wednesday opportunities include ongoing Bible studies and short-term courses, all with long-term benefits. From the youngest to the oldest, there are offerings for everyone to learn and grow in their relationship with the Lord and others.
Walk with us; walk worthy!
What is a disciple, and what is discipling? There are probably many answers that come to mind. In a broad sense, it takes place in everything we do as a church. Through our worshiping: the songs we sing, the prayers we lift, the biblical preaching that takes place; Through our growing: the small group ministry; the Bible-centered teaching, and the fellowship and conversations as close relationships form; Through our serving; holding a door, welcoming a guest, serving coffee, caring for one another, and assisting one another; Through our reaching: the spreading of the gospel of Jesus in both deed and word to a community living apart from God.
Not everyone is called to preach, or teach, or lead in front of the group. But, every believer is called to discipling. Matthew 28 tells us all to go and make disciples. Are you? If you are interested in being discipled or becoming a disciplemaker click one of the buttons below.
