Discipleship Program

“Discipleship” is learning everything that Jesus taught (Matthew 28:19-20). It was the last thing He said before ascending to heaven (Luke 24:51), being the Great Commission for all believers. The best way to fulfill this is to personally read the Bible, starting with the New Testament and then reading the Old Testament (John 17:17). This can be difficult, though, so we also provide a list of articles that explain what God’s Word has to say about every topic in the world. Instead of reading every page in order, we encourage you to save this page and read specific topics whenever you are struggling to answer a problem in your life.

Introduction

Get started by understanding the most crucial aspects of being a Christian.

Other Beliefs

Every belief besides Christianity–atheism, Islam, Hinduism, etc.–has many logical flaws. Read more…

Considering Jesus

Why should I care about God, the spiritual world, or helping others (John 3:16)? Read more…

Grace of Salvation

“Call on the name of the Lord” Jesus in love (Matthew 22:37-38) without hate (Matthew 8:29) to start a relationship with God (Romans 10:13). Read more…

Confidence before God

Obey God (Matthew 7:21), have faith in God’s grace instead of your works (Ephesians 2:8-9), confess all sins (I John 1:9), and continue until you don’t feel condemned (I John 3:21). Read more…

Foundational Disciplines

Pray, repent and forgive, fellowship, be baptized, remember Jesus’ sacrifice, seek wisdom, and be held accountable (Hebrews 12:11). Read more…

About God

Learn more about who God is and what He offers you in this broken world.

Worshipping God

Have a healthy fear of God (Proverbs 9:10; Matthew 10:28) and understand why His power and love make Him the only Being worthy of worship. Read more…

Faith in God

Instead of striving to stay alive in fear as a slave of the devil (Hebrews 2:14,15), have faith and trust (Hebrews 11:6) in His resources (Philippians 4:19). Read more…

Suffering and Evil

Learn why evil exists (Romans 3:10-11) and how suffering is the path to spiritual perfection (James 1:2-4; Hebrews 2:10). Read more…

Judgment of Hell

If we do not love and obey God (Matthew 7:21), we will have to pay for our own sins in hell (Matthew 5:22,26). Read more…

Hope of Heavenly Blessings

We have hope that our real blessings are in heaven (Colossians 1:5). Read more…

Sin & Character

Sin hurts ourselves and others, and character helps us to not do them. All sin falls under lust, envy, and pride (I John 2:16). These 3 sins manifest themselves in 9 primary ways and can be destroyed by the character of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).

Lust & Contentment

Although gluttony, greed, and sexual immorality might seem impossible to defeat, God has given us the ability to be content (Philippians 4:11-13). Read more…

Envy & Gratitude

vanity, beauty, theft

Pride & Humility

Our life should not be about fighting for our rights (I Corinthians 9:15,19) but becoming a servant to all (Mark 10:43-45), bearing with the weak (Galatians 6:2).

Hate & Love

Unhealthy disgust becomes resentment and hate. All commandments can be simplified by loving God and others, the 2 greatest commandments (Matthew 22:36-40). Read more…

Depression & Joy

Unhealthy sadness becomes depression.

Anxiety & Peace

Unhealthy fear leads to anxiously worrying, but peace leads to courage that erases all shame and guilt (Philippians 3:12-14).

Wrath & Patience

Unhealthy anger becomes wrath.

Laziness & Kindness

Apathy leads to laziness, but healthy ambition is kindness in a compassionate direction.

Hypocrisy & Goodness

A liar tends to hypocritically condemn, while a good person honestly seeks pure righteousness. Everyone does what is right/good in their own eyes so the root of unrighteousness is hypocrisy.

Idolatry & Faithfulness

The idolatrous seek self-worth from temporary sources, such as the approval of others, while the faithful seek self-worth from God.

Manipulation & Gentleness

Manipulators hurt others for their own benefit, but the gentle know how to benefit others and themselves.

Weakness & Self-control

The weak can’t do what they want, but the self-controlled can do anything God wants them to.

Your Purpose

Good works are what you should do to fulfill your purpose (Ephesians 2:10). 

Believing in Yourself

God said you can do anything in His will if you trust in Him (Philippians 4:13).

Reconciliation and Restoration

can’t offer gift (really spiritual gift) if you’re unreconciled; living in harmony

Determining your Gifts

Each Christian is given a different manifestation of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 12:7) for the purpose of working together in unity (I Peter 4:10). Learn more about spiritual gifts.

Unity

Eagerly seek to unify with other Christians (Ephesians 4:2-3) who share the same definition of the Gospel of Salvation (Titus 3:3-11) and deity of Jesus (I John 4:2-3). Read more…

Discipleship

Ultimately the greatest work we can do is to lead other people to serve Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20). There is no greater deed than leading someone to say they are sorry for their sins (Luke 15:7). Always remember that for any good work that you do, it doesn’t matter if many people are coming to your church or if many people like you. If they don’t eventually commit their life to Jesus, your work is in vain (Galatians 4:9,11).
