A disciple is a person who follows Jesus. At Bethel, we believe that all Christians are called to follow Jesus and help others follow Jesus. This is what we mean by discipleship. Discipleship is not a program, event, or experience. Instead, it is an ongoing process where we follow Jesus and help others follow him.
We call this process the 4Es:
- Engage our culture, community, and non-Christians with the gospel.
- Establish believers in the faith, spiritual disciplines, and spiritual family.
- Equip followers with basic skills to make disciples.
- Empower disciples to be and make disciples.
