Multiplying Disciples

Faith Church will be focusing on fulfilling Jesus Christ’s central command to his disciples as He left the earth, to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). That means caring for members in a way that helps them spiritually advance (1Thessalonians 4:1), and reaching out to outsiders with the Good News of Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:13-16).

Properly trained disciples also observe what Jesus taught (Matthew 28:20), which includes making other disciples (v19). We will be showing our members, young and old, how to do just that, allowing the Holy Spirit to work the regenerating, multiplying work of the new creation in our midst. Multiplication, rather than addition, is the outcome.
