Discipleship

Ministry Leader: Rich & Beth Braymiller - rbraymiller@lighthousebaptistnt.com

 

The word disciple simply means, disciplined one. It is God’s will that all believers become disciples of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20). Through the Lord Jesus Christ, we may enter the relationship with God that He intended for us to have when He created us. No longer living life in vain, we may now tap into the reason for our very existence on this planet.
 
We believe that the devil is aware of every person who enters this relationship with the Father. Though his desire for you to reject God’s salvation is no longer in effect, he now will exert every effort to keep you from growing close to God and fulfilling God’s plan for your life.
 
The discipleship ministry is designed to help you begin your new life in Jesus Christ. They are to help you understand what your relationship to God is, how to communicate with Him, how to apply basic Bible principles to your life, and how your life can be an influential witness and testimony of God’s grace.
 
Whether you have recently come to Christ, or you have been a Christian for years, understanding these principles will help establish a solid foundation in your life whereby you can learn to enjoy a victorious life in the Lord Jesus Christ.
 
Our sincere prayer for you is that these lessons might help you grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
