After a mind-skin changing Greenhouse Story 1 with Neil Cole followed by a tremendous time with Jim Yost over breakfast, I am full of faith and hope! Jesus is surely building (or dare I say rebuilding) His Church. Programs, buildings, events have their purpose but the crux of the matter is to make disciples. We need a radical shift in focus from doing church to making disciples. Jesus simply commanded us to:
2. Make disciples
3. Teach them to obey all He had commanded us - the first command being to be baptized. This is why baptism is so important, it is a disciple's first act of obedience to follow Jesus.
