Systematic Discipleship at Vista Grande
Vista Grande Church seeks to obey the great commission command to make disciples by constantly implementing three things into our church life:
- Discipleship Principles from scripture
- Discipleship Practices for our local Church based upon the principles as well as practical experience in our specific situation
- Discipleship Promotion and leadership which involves consistently encouraging participation in the Church’s Practices in order to equip members for the ministry
Goal: To provide a comprehensive system to more effectively equip all members of VGC to consistent, lifelong spiritual growth and commitment.
- The Mission of the Church (Matt 28:18-20)
- The Christian Life
- Relational (Jn 17:3)
- A Call to follow Jesus in the Kingdom life and journey with Him (Mt 16:24-26; 2 Cor 3:18)
- A lifelong process
Discipleship myths. Discipleship is not:
- Only for the “truly committed”
- Simply a transfer of knowledge
- A specific program or method
VGC Discipleship Practices
Discipleship practices are based upon the principles and tailored to the natural life stages of discipleship and spiritual growth
VGC uses the Navigator 2-7 Series, books 1 through 3, as our basic discipleship class materials.
