Transforming Lives by making disciples who think feel & act like Jesus!
WHAT IS DISCIPLE BUILDING?
Disciple building is a biblical imperative, a primary task for the Church (see Matthew 28:19-20).
It is the process by which mature believers, in cooperation with God’s Spirit, assist younger believers as they progress in their faith toward Christlike maturity, intimacy with God and good works. The goal of disciple building is maturity that glorifies God.
“We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete (mature) in Christ.” (Colossians 1:28)
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all peoples, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matt. 28:19-20)
Extensive research, coupled with decades of disciple building experience, has enabled WDA to help modern disciple builders design and implement a culture of discipleship based on the pattern Jesus used in Scripture to build the Church.
More than just a program, Christ’s approach to becoming a Disciple Building Church is about:
- Life-on-life discipleship
- Equipping the saints for ministry and discipleship
- Breaking down strongholds that prohibit growth
- Teaching people to obey everything Christ has commanded (see Matt. 28:20)
- Building disciples who build disciples
- Cultivating a healthy, safe, and mature environment where growth never stops taking place
The 28/20® Project
The 28/20® Project is an initiative to help churches and disciple builders employ all of the approaches, content, and material they need to fulfill the whole of the Great Commission, as modeled by Christ.
Matthew 28:18-20: “And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”
