Discipleship at Christ Presbyterian Church is a continuation of Jesus’ great commission whereby he instructed his followers to make disciples and to “teach them to obey everything I have commanded you (Matt. 28:20)…”
Discipleship is a process in which we “continue to work out our salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12b)” mindful of the fact that the same gospel that drew us to God, is the same gospel that saves and secures us in Christ, and it is the same gospel that then continues to work in us, through the power of the Holy Spirit whereby we are changed more and more into Christ’s likeness.
Discipleship takes place in community where the body of Christ supports, encourages, and exhorts one another in their relationship with God and with each other. The Apostle Paul describes the church as a body (1 Cor. 12) with each individual functioning to serve and strengthen the body as a whole “if one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it” (1 Cor. 12:26).
Discipleship at CPC occurs by way of one on one relationships, small groups such as Sunday School, bible studies, and community groups, and large gatherings such as corporate worship.
