Jesus gave His followers a clear command to “make disciples” (Mathew 28:18-20). A disciple is an apprentice who learns his trade from the skilled master craftsman. In the case of Christian living, that master is Jesus. Even the term “Christian,” introduced later in the book of Acts (Acts 11:26), simply means a “Christ follower.” Interestingly, outsiders gave them this name when people saw that they lived and loved, like Jesus.
Because of these truths, at Agora Church, we have intentionally set out to create a “disciple-making culture” and not a spectator culture. Out of our desire to be faithful to God in the 21st century, we look back to the ancient scriptures of the Christian faith to direct us as we seek God’s plan for our church.
