Connect, Grow, Serve,
Discipleship is a process. It is a process that is owed by its leaders and its members.
We call it "Connecting, Growing, Serving".
First we seek to connect people to God and others. We desire to see people become connecting believers. Next challenge connecting believers to become growing believers by engaging in opportunities for deeper spiritual growth. Finally the process ends with growing believers committing to become serving believers.
We use our Sunday morning worship services to make connecting believers. The worship service is designed to bring people into relationship with God and other Christians. After someone comes to worship service, the person is encouraged to plug into a Bible fellowship.
The process does not end there. Once a person attends Bible fellowship, the person is challenged to join a small group ministry.
These group ministries are designed to help people become serving believers. These groups are serving teams, and they do ministry together either in the community or in the church.
PGBC strategically moves people from worship to Bible fellowship, to small groups, ultimately growing into a mature christian disciple.
Notice that in this disciple-making factory, God, not us, does the transformation. A christian believer merely proclaims good news and invites people to come and meet the Christ we know.
Christian believers do not convert. We share our faith and extend invitations. Everyone at PGBC is expected to be a part of the whole disciple-making process.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, 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. (Matthew 28:19-20)
Jesus commanded his followers to carry out evangelism.
God gave Jesus authority over heaven and earth. On the basis of that authority, Jesus told his disciples to make more disciples as they preached, baptized, and taught. With this same authority, Jesus still commands us to tell others the Good News and make them disciples for the kingdom.
Evangelism is for all Christians. We are to go whether it is next door or to another country and make disciples. It is not an option, but a command to all who call Jesus "Lord." We are not all evangelists in the formal sense, but we have all received gifts that we can use to help fulfill the great commission. As we obey, we have comfort in the knowledge that Jesus is always with us.
Through life applicable teaching, we are reaching out in different ways to spread the message of salvation through Jesus Christ. Living out life in a way that honors God and shows His love to others is vital.
Sharing the Gospel is more than just preaching to someone from the Bible, but rather, with one's actions. Living life so that people see Christ is what God intends.
When people see something different in a Christian but can't put their finger on it, it's usually because the person is living their life in a way that expresses Godliness.
It's not because the Christian walks around in a haughty manner, looking down on the world. It's because he or she lives life in love.
We at PGBC live life in an expression of love, thankfulness and worship to God.
