At CF, we want to be obedient to the call of Jesus to make disciples - "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..." Matt. 28:19 We hunger to see a discipleship movement that starts with simply meeting with another believer for the purpose of growing to be more like Jesus.
In the Christian world, there are so many different concepts of discipleship - so we have found it helpful to summarize our meaning in the following statement:
Discipleship is one person helping another become a lifelong, obedient follower of Jesus who makes disciples. There is an intentionality that goes beyond hanging out at a coffee shop and a fullness of growth that stretches beyond an accountability meetings.
We want to follow a 2 Timothy 2:2 principle of equipping believers who will equip others, who will equip others. This is where the idea of movement gets birthed - it is not mere addition, but multiplication through exponential reproduction! We have adopted a simple, reproducible tool - we call the Discipleship Toolkit - to help see this process get started in every believers life. The Toolkit is a 7-week series of lessons that will equip believers in the basic foundations of following Jesus and making new disciples. Our goal is to see everyone at CF trained in utilizing this tool and making disciples in all our different spheres of influence.
