Today, we have many ways of defining success in life. Some define it as being a sports hero, others as being wealthy, others as being popular and well liked, and still others as being happy. How does God define success? He defines it as being spiritually mature! How do we become spiritually mature? There’s only one way, and it’s called discipleship. However, statistics show that discipleship is in a state of crisis today. Many Christians are not growing in Christ and are stuck in the process of reaching spiritual maturity. A Barna study reveals that almost nine out of ten senior pastors of Protestant churches assert that spiritual immaturity is one of the most serious issues facing the church. Sadly, what discipleship meant in the time of Christ and what it means today is vastly different. Moreover, the importance Christ and the Apostles gave to discipleship is also stunningly different than the importance many Christians and churches today give it. Unlike the disciples who had much of Scripture memorized, a whopping 81% of Christians today don’t read their Bibles regularly. Unlike Christ’s disciples who were “Fishers of Men,” 61% of believers today have not shared their faith in the past six months. And sadly, unlike Christ and the Apostles who made discipleship the central focus of their ministries, 81% of pastors today have no regular discipleship programs in their churches. Discipleship is being neglected today, and the consequences are crippling many Christians and churches. This book hopes to change that! Chapter 1 focuses on the state of discipleship today and exposes the sad truth that it’s in crisis mode. Chapter 2 reveals 13 key factors contributing to the lack of discipleship today. Chapter 3 defines biblical discipleship based on central phrases Christ used in His ministry. Chapter 4 brings to light 14 essential components of the discipleship-making process that must be understood and practiced in order to attain spiritual maturity. Chapter 5 provides practical, “how-to” help for growing in Christ. It includes self-assessment tests for measuring your level of spiritual maturity in each essential component of discipleship and gives hands-on, useful ideas for taking steps toward spiritual maturity. Discipleship is a command for all believers and is our highest calling. This book provides biblical help for fulfilling this calling and seeks to discover what God says about genuine growth in Christ. It’s both an informative book and a “how-to” book. It deals with the barriers that are hindering discipleship, and offers practical help for overcoming these barriers and attaining spiritual maturity. So, are you ready to grow? Would you like to be pleasing to God? Would you like to fulfill the reason for which you’ve been created? Would you like the full blessings of God in your life? Would you like to become spiritually mature? Would you like to hear Christ’s words, “Well done, good and faithful servant,” when you arrive in heaven? If so, this book is for you.

A Biblical Theology of Christian Discipleship is a spiritual resource that examines the biblical and theological doctrines to do ministry amid challenges and oppositions. The role of the church is to persuade individuals to establish a philosophy of authentic discipleship. This book challenges the church to walk humbly before God as genuine disciples. The primary focus is to carefully follow Christ's mandate of the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20, "Go and make disciples." More importantly, the book describes how the church can effectively use different methods and principles to better prepare believers for Christ.

A biblical disciple is not merely aware of the teachings of Jesus Christ, or God’s prescription for being a follower of his word. It is one who holds certain distinguishable marks who has been supernaturally changed by God’s grace, and submits to the will of Jesus Christ in the power of the Spirit. A disciple is implanted with a new spiritual principle in the heart, demonstrating a life of self-denial yielding to the Lord Jesus Christ who bought them with his own blood. In the midst of the body of Christ, the church, a disciple has 5 non-negotiable qualities as outlined in the word of God. Gospel Love, which is the badge of the Christian. Gospel Interest, which glorifies God through Christ in truth and the power of the Spirit to be used to expand the kingdom of God. Gospel Consolation, which exercises a consoling spirit between believers. Gospel Encouragement, which is to encourage one another in the faith while it is still called today. And Gospel Fellowship, which brings together disciples under the commonness of covenanted blessings both with God, and with other believers in a local church. People devoid of these biblical disciplines, who do not hold and exemplify these five marks as Scripture outlines them, are spiritually destitute of supernatural grace, and the basic Spirit-filled function of walking with Jesus Christ in newness of life.

In Christian Discipleship, Dr. Mike leads the reader into a true relationship with the Lord, in terms of being a disciple of Christ. The great German theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it best, when he said, "Cheap grace is the mortal enemy of our church. Our struggle today is for costly grace.” This study guide outlines and explains what it means to follow Christ in a post-modern world beset by humanism (What's best for me? How can I be satisfied?). In being a disciple of Christ, every call of Jesus is a call to death – denying oneself.

When a person becomes a Christian the ongoing work of discipleship continues. The intake of sound Bible doctrine into the soul is vital in order to grow spiritually strong and mature. This is where the crucial role of the local church comes in. Every believer needs to be taught by qualified leaders (evangelists, pastor-teachers, etc.) and be ministered to by various other gifted members of the body of Christ. Christian Discipleship and the Local Church gives basic knowledge to find a good church, discover one's spiritual gift/s, and advance in the Christian life. It also equips Christians with concise and easy to read material to use when doing the life-changing work of discipling others. It can even be used for church-planting or strengthening existing churches.

Students are often tested to evaluate their academic knowledge, but few Christian schools use objective measures to determine if a student has become a true disciple of Christ. Unfortunately, there are few organizations that provide metrics for measuring biblical knowledge, let alone any sort of comparative evaluation of students engaging in the Christian disciplines, forming a biblical worldview, or actually being impacted spiritually by the programs of the school. No matter whose statistics one chooses to believe, the inescapable truth is that the church is losing its young men and women at an alarming rate once they graduate from high school. The solution to this problem is simple, but increasingly difficult to solve with each passing year. Discipleship is what is needed for young people to truly identify who they are in Christ, so that they can begin to develop godly habits and ultimately grow in their knowledge, faith, and desire to serve the Lord and his Kingdom. Christian schools have some particular advantages in the area of discipleship; however, their full potential is, at the moment, untapped. Discipleship in Education is about preparing everyone from administrators, teachers, pastors, and parents to be ready to unleash that potential.

Seeking the Lost, Keeping Them, Making Them Disciples By: Dr. Benoit Petit-Homme God bless Dr. Benoit Petit-Homme for all the work he has done in putting this book together. I believe that any church or leader who will follow these biblically-grounded principles will see beautiful results in changed lives for the kingdom. Teresa L. Reeve, PhD, Associate Dean, Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, Associate Professor of New Testament Contexts, Andrews University, United States of America Dr. Benoit Petit-Homme’s contribution to the discipleship crisis is a compelling re-examination of scripture, church history, and 21st century pastoral experience. Practical and convincing, his straightforward style brings real solutions to the evangelistic Achilles’ heels of attrition. He reminds us of what has been forgotten and calls us back to our relational roots. Pr. Ron Kelly, Senior Pastor, Village Seventh-day Adventist Church, Berrien Springs, Michigan, United States of America Seeking the Lost, Keeping Them, Making Them Disciples by Dr. Benoit Petit-Homme is a handy Christ-based discipleship resource that will contribute to the mission of training and equipping church ministry leaders in the evangelistic work of reaping, retaining, and nurturing new believing Christians. This is a must-read for church officers, pastors, and ministry directors in the Christian church. Ron C. Smith, PhD., D.Min, President, Southern Union Conference of SDA Every year, many thousands of people hear the Good News of Jesus Christ and choose to be baptized and join a church community. Unfortunately, it is also true that every year many new converts leave a church relatively shortly after joining. The specific reasons that each person leaves the church could fill a book by themselves, but they all boil down to one thing: a lack of focus on the part of the church community on turning converts into disciples of our Savior. A disciple of Christ does more than attend church services. A disciple is an active member of the church community. A disciple is a witness to others. A disciple seeks to grow the church by seeking to lead everyone they meet to Christ. Dr. Benoit Petit-Homme is a committed disciple of Christ, and after extensive study of exactly why new converts leave the church, he has developed a process by which any church can make disciples. All it takes is a little extra work, a bit of encouragement, and an unwavering faith in the Lord.

Fernandes writes his philosophy of modern-day discipleship in his book Contemporary Discipleship. Fernandes breaks down the different aspects of effective discipleship while also defining what biblical discipleship is. Discipleship is a chain, and each discipleship relationship is another link on the continuous chain. The chain starts with Christ, meaning that each teacher should point their disciple to Christ and aim to make them look more like Christ, not like them. We can do that through doing life together and doing ministry together. Through those things, the teacher is taking the opportunity to invest in the disciple. 30 27 28
