What is Discipleship?
Discipleship is a Biblical word for learning. In the Christian’s life, discipleship is a life-long process of growing to spiritual maturity. In the Bible we are encouraged to be conformed to the image of Christ – to be Christ-like. That is not a simple or easy task. Disciples not only learn, they do what they have learned. Until one has put what one has learned into action, the process is not complete. At Lindenwood we are all about developing disciples. The expectation is that, from youngest to oldest, we will all be in the discipleship process. The church provides all opportunities to experiences and exercise spiritual growth.
We believe that all healthy Christians do Five Things regularly:
We have also discovered that the church needs to provide growing disciples these following tools:
- Practical teaching
- Private disciplines
- Personal ministry
- Providential relationships
- Pivotal circumstances
You are encouraged to join us at Lindenwood as we seek to grow into the people God has created us to be.
