Who is a Disciple?
A disciple is someone who has been made alive by God through new birth by trust in the gospel and is subsequently growing to love God and others through worship, community, and mission.
We understand the gospel to be the climax of the entire Bible, the hinge point of God's redemptive plan, and the clearest display of Who He is and what He has done. Jesus is the one and only way, truth, and life, the only source of salvation, the only access to God. Though Christians may differ elsewhere, here they must find their center.
