Many new believers have questions about what it means to live as a Christian in the context of a local church, and pastors are looking for resources to pass along to their congregations to help them think biblically about the Christian life. Church Questions is a series by 9Marks that seeks to provide Christians with sound and accessible biblical teaching by answering common questions about church life. Each booklet offers biblical answers and practical applications with the goal of nurturing healthy church practice and commitment.
In this addition to the Church Questions series, Garrett Kell explores the Bible’s teaching on disciple making. The Bible presents two different forms of disciple making: calling unbelievers to follow Jesus, and helping those who already know Jesus grow in their relationship with him. In this short booklet, readers will learn the importance of being discipled, how discipleship takes place in a local church, and how to get started in discipling relationships.
