  • 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. (Acts 2:46-47)
    Biblical fellowship is the essence of what it means to be the church.
    This is the goal of discipleship.
  • The goal of the church is to become the people of God in a certain place and/or among a people group.
    What are the pseudo goals that we often aim for which do not fulfill God’s true goal for His people?
  • The goal of the church is to become the people of God in a certain place and/or among a people group.
    We must distinguish between the goal of the church and the goal of the servants of the church.
  • The goal of the church is to become the people of God in a certain place and/or among a people group.
    The goal of the servants of the church is to make disciples of all nations.
    CHURCH PLANTING
  • The goal of the church is to become the people of God in a certain place and/or among a people group.
    The goal of the church is not to plant churches but to be the church!
    CHURCH BEING
  • 5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
    (1 John 1:5-7)
    Apart from true fellowship, discipleship will never happen.
    We cannot make disciples without it.

    (1 John 1:5-7)
    Apart from true fellowship, discipleship will never happen.
  • When the church is not fulfilling its calling to become the people of God, discipleship cannot happen or succeed.
    How do we usually disciple people in our churches?
    Are we succeeding?
  • When the church is not fulfilling its calling to become the people of God, discipleship cannot happen or succeed.
    Why are relationships so vital in disciple making?
    DISCIPLESHIP IS A RELATIONSHIP
  • LIFE
    IDEAL
    NEW DEAL
    ORDEAL
    REAL
  • 14 I myself am convinced, my brothers and sisters, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another. (Romans 15:14)
    When there’s true fellowship, discipleship follows naturally.
    This is the ideal that must be pursued.
  • 14 I myself am convinced, my brothers and sisters, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another. (Romans 15:14)
    When there’s true fellowship, discipleship follows naturally.
    This is the ideal that must be pursued.
    Because discipleship depends on it.
  • When there is true love, the church will naturally pursue spiritual growth for each and every member.
    Why do churches fail in discipleship?
    ABSENCE OF LOVE
  • When there is true love, the church will naturally pursue spiritual growth for each and every member.
    How do churches succeed in discipleship?
    BY SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE
  • PRINCIPLE NO. 7
    Discipleship is the purpose of all true fellowship.
    PRINCIPLE NO. 8
    Without accountability the community will become a fatality.
  • 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. (Rom 12:4-5)
    Believers must understand their true identity.
    Being precedes doing.
  • When Christians do not know who they are in Christ, they will forever remain self-centered.
    The perennial problem of most traditional churches:
    CONSUMERISM
  • When Christians do not know who they are in Christ, they will forever remain self-centered.
    The common approach in most traditional churches:
    ENTERTAINMENT
  • When Christians do not know who they are in Christ, they will forever remain self-centered.
    The real solution to this perennial problem?
    MISSIONAL THINKING
  • When Christians do not know who they are in Christ, they will forever remain self-centered.
    Missional thinking begins with
    SELF-IDENTITY
  • 15 “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.” (Matthew 18:15)
    This true identity will be tested repeatedly.
    The world, Satan, and the flesh will try to divert our attention.
  • Discipleship is all about reminding and challenging people to always live in the truth of who they are in Christ.
    The challenges of daily living often leads us to
    CONSUMERISM
  • Discipleship is all about reminding and challenging people to always live in the truth of who they are in Christ.
    But we are always challenged to put-off the
    OLD SELF
  • Discipleship is all about reminding and challenging people to always live in the truth of who they are in Christ.
    This is the reason why our most important priority is
    SPIRITUAL FORMATION
  • 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ 17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector. (Matthew 18:16-17)
    Maintaining accountability will ultimately protect the community.
    This is our responsibility because of love.
  • If we don’t hold each other accountable through discipleship, the church will lose its saltiness.
    A community will eventually die because of
    SELF-CENTEREDNESS
  • If we don’t hold each other accountable through discipleship, the church will lose its saltiness.
    When Christians live self-centered lives they
    SELF-DESTRUCT
  • If we don’t hold each other accountable through discipleship, the church will lose its saltiness.
    When this happens there is no one to blame but
    THE CHURCH ITSELF
  • PRINCIPLE NO. 7
    Discipleship is the purpose of all true fellowship.
    PRINCIPLE NO. 8
    Without accountability the community will become a fatality.
