A Disciple is: Self-Feeder, Easy-Bleeder, Passionate-Breeder

Loved this statement of values and definition of discipleship by a new church out west:

…a community bent on extending God’s Kingdom by building relationships that point to Jesus.
— Impacting our culture outside the church walls.
— Going into the world and Serving those in need.
— Invading secular space by gathering at beaches, coffee houses, parks, homes etc.

We Value… growing, worshipping and serving in community and making disciples who are…

1. Self-Feeders (Personally engaging with God and His word)
  • Developing habits that bring us to maturity in Christ
  • Practicing accountability in the area of personal growth

2. Easy-Bleeders (Sacrificing self for others)

  • Involving ourselves in social justice endeavors
  • Participating in missional opportunities…serving the poor and needy

3. Passionate-Breeders (Multiplying God’s kingdom)

  • Going into the world, engaging our culture to build relationships that point to Christ
  • Making disciples who make disciples

Agreed! Praying for more Self-Feeders, Easy-Bleeders, Passionate-Breeders.
