The Church's Role<br>in Making Disciples

Why is discipleship a collective activity?

This study is based on the book Growing Toward Spiritual Maturity from the Evangelical Training Association. This is the third study in our 12-study course available for purchase here.


“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

The Big Idea:The purpose of this lesson is to understand the central role of the universal and local church in making disciples of Christ. The task of making disciples happens most effectively within the context of healthy relationships in the body of Christ.

At the conclusion of this study the students will be able to:

• explain why the universal church was given the primary responsibility to make disciples;
• understand why local church relationships are so important in making disciples;
• identify ways they can help their local church to become a more effective disciple-making family.
