We aspire to instill growth values for all believers in EPCC in 2018. Our plan is to help you Think Big in growing, but start small in the process, and go deep in God!
Drawing from Mark 3:13-15, we design our foundation for growth and discipleship in EPCC:
And He went up on the mountain and called to Him those He Himself wanted. And they came to Him. Then He appointed twelve] that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach, and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons.
Key areas of focus from our theme verses are:
Discipleship is building people not building a name or title (they were disciples first before Apostles).
Discipleship begins with our “with-ness” in Christ before building a witness for Christ (they were with Jesus before they did things for Jesus).
Discipleship is building our position in Christ first rather than building power for Christ. (The time they were with Jesus produced the miracles and power).
Discipleship is a process not a program (Jesus builds people not just program).
“but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ”
2 Peter 3:18
