Gospel-Centered Evangelism

Gospel-Centered Evangelism

Derwin L. Gray:

Discipleship isn’t knowing more information about Jesus, but knowing Jesus personally and being transformed into his image through the constant exposure of the gospel of grace in the context of a local church. Jesus’ life and mission becomes ours as we live by faith in him in the everydayness of life by the Spirit’s power as his church. The deeper a person’s discipleship, the deeper they go into the culture to reach lost people.

A disciple becomes like the teacher, and our teacher is Jesus who came “to seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). Our teacher said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men” (Matt. 4:19). We believe that spiritually mature people love Jesus and want lost people to love him, too.
