- Disciples are born again when they commit their lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in their lives and his atonement at the cross. While most students receive Jesus Christ as their Savior in their homes at early ages, many students have made Jesus their “forever friend” in one of our elementary classrooms or chapels. As students mature in their faith, they are constantly encouraged and challenged to discover more about their personal Savior through God’s Word and the Holy Spirit. As they begin to see Jesus reflected in their lives, they can begin to discover His giftings as they are created in His image.
- In response to the gift of salvation, true disciples choose to sit at the Master’s feet and begin to grow more and more into His likeness. Elementary students are guided to live Godly lives motivated from internal convictions based upon 36 Godly character traits that are focused on each month. Secondary students are guided to mature in the areas of authentic faith, ultimate authority, moral boundaries, healthy friendships, wise choices, spiritual disciplines, and putting others first. As students develop in each of these areas, their spiritual gifts slowly mature.
- True disciples become so overwhelmed by the tremendous love of God that their natural response is to share this love with others. Through their discovery of His love, and the development of His character in their lives, students are encouraged to use their gifts at all stages of their lives. From sharing Jesus with their family and friends, to sharing food with the local Homeless population, to sharing their faith in another country, being deployed to the lost is the most exciting part of the discipleship process. This process is never complete as students continue to discover, develop, and deploy the truth of Jesus in their lives and become disciple-makers themselves.
