DISCIPLESHIP AT HILLCREST CHURCH

At Hillcrest Church, our mission is to enable people of all ages to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

But what does a fully devoted follower of Jesus really look like?  How can we make decisions to grow this year?

Our discipleship model is a tool designed to give our church community common language around what this really means.

WHAT DOES ' FULLY DEVOTED FOLLOWER' MEAN?

Great Question

We regularly talk about our Mission Statement:

We strive to see all people reconciled to God and mature in Christ.

After a lot of prayer, research, and consultation across all age groups of Hillcrest, we have developed a tool designed to give our church community common language around what it means to be a "fully devoted follower" of Jesus Christ.

ACTS 2:42-47

"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.  Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,  praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
This account recorded about the life of the early church can be the model applied at every locatl church that is developing fully devoted followers of Jesus around the world.  This passage from Acts 2, we see people celebrating big, connecting small, walking with Jesus, sharing the work and engaging in mission.
