And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matt 22:37-40 ESV)
What is Discipleship?
Discipleship is the process of growing to love God and love our neighbor more deeply. God is already at work in the life of every Christian to expand our heart toward Him and others. The call for each Christian is to become aware of this work and cooperate with God.
At Holy Spirit we encourage people to join a discipleship group, which is a monthly meeting of the same 3-4 people. At this meeting, the groups shares their joys and struggles in their life with Christ and studies together so that God can comfort and challenge them.
Unlike small groups, these groups are closed (it stays the same people throughout), which allows the group to develop a higher level of accountability.
