We've begun the first stage of our church-wide emphasis on discipleship in which we'll be exploring themes from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7). Because we recognize that people learn in different ways, we are encouraging individuals to join the journey by reading the book, The Good and Beautiful Life by James Bryon Smith. And because community fosters our growth as disciples of Jesus, we are encouraging Trinity's CommunityLife groups to take the journey together.Read more: The Good and Beautiful Life
Here is our working definition of what discipleship is for our church-wide emphasis on discipleship:
“Discipleship is a lifelong journey of transformation toward Christ-likeness. It is both deeply personal and happens best in deepening community; it is accomplished by the Holy Spirit, yet calls for our heartfelt response. It is Christ's invitation to abundant life, for the sake of God's redemptive purpose for the world.”
