"Go and make disciples..."

Basics of faith formation 1160x636

Famous words of Jesus. Similarly, the mission of The United Methodist Church is “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” More than a commandment the church follows, disciple making is at the heart of who the church is. Churches equip Christians to discover their “why” of discipleship through providing opportunities for growth. Church staff and ministry leaders, or faith formation leaders, are on the front lines of discipleship formation.

This booklet, in conjunction with other intentional discipleship system resources, seeks to offer faith formation leaders guidance in this task of making disciples. As we’ll see, discipleship is not an individual activity. By virtue of our baptism, we are called into a community of believers. Thus, being a disciple includes personal responsibilities and the invitation into the wider world that God loves.
