Dare to be a Disciple 4d

Dare to be a Disciple 4d
Read Dare to be a Disciple 4
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
This course has been born out of a conviction that I have, in my 22 years as a preacher, teacher and pastor, concentrated too much on making converts and too little on making disciples. I have come to the realisation that the two are not the same. Jesus command is "Go and make disciples", so
ACTS OF WORSHIP

I will be faithful in attendance and participation in worship each Sunday.

We will participate in weekly corporate worship, striving for true involvement.

I will seek opportunities for worship at least once each week in addition to Sunday.

I will receive the sacrament of Holy Communion each week, when possible in my covenant disciple group.

We will receive the sacrament of Holy Communion daily.

We will prayerfully consider what resources we can contribute each week to the work of Christ in the world.

I will return to Christ the first tenth of all that I receive.

We will pray for those who lead us in worship each week, and especially for the preacher.

We will pray for those who visit our worship service, that they will be touched by grace.

We will pray for those who are baptised in our church and visit the parents of baptised children.
