DISCIPLESHIP

We are intentional about being and making disciples of Jesus. A disciple of Jesus is someone who walks with Jesus for a lifetime. That person spends time with Jesus, is dedicated to Jesus’ purposes for their life, and trusts Jesus to empower them to live out His call.

  1. Ten translations of Matthew 28:19 use some variation of the word disciple to translate
    the Greek word MATHETEUO, which was translated “teach” in the King James Version.
    MATHETEUO means “to become a pupil; transitively. to disciple, i.e. enroll as a scholar”
    (Strong’s Concordance).
    a. This same Greek word was translated “instructed” in Matthew 13:52, which
    says, “Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the
    kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth
    out of his treasure things new and old.”
    b. Vine’s Expository Dictionary says the Greek word MATHETES (from which
    MATHETEUO is derived) means “‘a learner’ (from MANTHANO, ‘to learn,’ from
    a root MATH-, indicating thought accompanied by endeavor).”
