At Northview we are not simply concerned with people being Christians, we are particularly concerned with people being disciples. The difference between the two terms is that being a Christian has come to be a static term which indicates someone’s religion. Whereas, being a disciple is a dynamic term. For this reason we want to have a discipleship plan that gives people direction and resources to be disciples of Jesus.
In addition, we recognize that discipleship is not binary, but rather a spectrum. Discipleship begins prior to knowing Jesus and ends by being thoroughly self-abandoned to him, with stages of development along the way. For this reason our discipleship plan seeks to move through four stages of deepening commitment.
For our full plan: Discipleship Plan.
