make disciples

We believe that one of the three simultaneous pursuits of a growing disciple of Jesus Christ is captured in the word "make".  Jesus' last words in the gospel of Matthew and in the book of Acts are words that call his followers to actively spread the gospel message in their back yard and to the ends of the earth.  Because of Jesus' command to go found in Matthew 28:18-20 we believe that our efforts to encourage this pursuit focus on our involvement in the community and the world outside the walls of the building where we meet as the church.
