“To make disciples of Jesus Christ.” That is the mission statement of Albuquerque’s First Baptist Church.
Pastor Kevin Linthicum shared the Word on Sunday, teaching the beginning of what it means to disciple others. In his teaching, Pastor Linthicum interviewed Tom Neal about what it means to be in a discipleship relationship. Listen to the podcast here. We are called to do more than study God’s Word to make us feel good. We are here to produce fruit.
To be a disciple, we must follow Christ. It goes beyond our salvation. It is part of a willingness to grow and become who God designed us to be. Who can we then pour into? What lives might we impact for the Kingdom?
“You cannot take someone to a place you’ve never been. You can’t disciple if you haven’t been discipled.” – Kevin Linthicum
We are called to disciple others. Are we living as disciples? Do you yearn for more? If you don’t have someone in your life right now who is teaching you, ask someone. Commit yourself to a discipleship relationship.
In a few weeks, Pastor Kevin Linthicum will dig into a sermon series on discipleship. This series will take us on a journey of what it means to answer the call to disciple others. Get ready.
