We believe that God’s vision for CFC is to glorify Him by making disciples of all people. This vision comes from a simple statement that Jesus made in Matthew 28 telling us to “Go make disciples!” Simply stated a disciple is one who follows Jesus and is becoming more like Him. This is true no matter where we are in our spiritual journey. We offer two tracks for discipleship. The first track is in a small group context. The second track is a one on one discipleship relationship. Click the tab to the left for more information on each of these tracks.
We have adopted four principles of discipleship that we believe should characterize how we want to do discipleship. The four principles are intentional, relational, life on a life and reproducible.
Here is what we mean by each of those principles:
We help people to:
- Fill their minds with Truth
- Fuel their affection for God
- Share God’s love by being a witness in their world
- Demonstrate God’s love as a member of CFC
- Spread His glory among all people
- Make disciple makers of a few
Our style of discipleship is relational. This means that we will meet regularly, invite others to join us, build lasting relationships, as well as be loving, caring, concerned, and compassionate as we disciple.
3. Life on a Life
We will disciple in a smaller context. We will be personal, knowing one another well, accountable and committed to one another and vulnerable in our relationships.
We must do our part to fulfill Jesus' words in Matthew 28. We must train towards being reproducible and we must ask for and expect disciples to reproduce. Reproducible means all disciples will soon begin making disciples of others.
