Being a Christian is not an event but a process: a disciple is literally a ‘learner’ – someone who, having turned to Christ, continues to grow and mature in their faith. And the purpose of this is to become more wholesome as a human being, growing in the potential of the person God created us to be. This happens as we each seek God personally and learn to live together as companions on the journey of faith and discipleship. Through a balanced programme of Bible teaching, training, nurture and prayer, we aim to help each other in the process of Christian growth. A ‘disciple’ is a learner, a student, an apprentice – a practitioner, even if only a beginner. Dallas Willard.
Discipleship involves a ‘journey’ but you do not need to travel alone. There are a number of possibilities available at ABC to aid you in your ongoing walk with God, including joining a small group.
