Discipleship is a Direction, Not a Destination
At Spring Baptist Church, we believe discipleship is about a direction, not a destination. In other words, being a disciple of Jesus Christ is a process that starts at salvation and ends when we go to heaven. So how do you know you are actively engaged in discipleship? We've identified eight characteristics of a disciple. Think of these as signposts to help guide you along your discipleship pathway.
• Bible engagement
• Obey God and deny self
• Share Christ
• Serve God and others
• Seek God
• Exercise faith
• Build relationships
• Live unashamed
Starting in 2023, we will add videos regularly (beginning with a series of 12 videos on Bible engagement followed by Sharing Christ) until we cover all eight signposts. We pray that Spring Baptist Church will provide valuable resources to equip you to be the disciple God desires and that you will make other disciples.
Sign Post: Share Christ
This 12-week class will help you learn how to better share the good news of Jesus with your family and friends. You will learn there is no one right way to share what Christ has done. Some people respond to the Word through facts and proofs, others through stories, and still others through relationships. This study will show you how you can better share the message of Christ in our current world.
