The Birdsboro Church of the Nazarene, that is our pastoral staff, elected and appointed leaders, ministry teams, members and regular attendee’s care deeply about being faithful followers of Jesus Christ and equipping others to be the same. We recognize that everyone is on a JOURNEY and that the degree in which we are faithful is affected by how much effort we put into understanding and developing our spiritual S.H.A.P.E.
At Birdsboro church of the Nazarene we want to be an authentic Biblical Community that Loves GOD Wholeheartedly, Lives Holy by following Jesus’ example, and leads others to encounter him personally. As disciple makers (Disciples), we are committed to obediently following the Great commission (Matthew 28:19-20) and training together to become more like Jesus through the study of God’s word.
We have decided to follow Jesus’ own model in making disciples. When Jesus made disciples, he did so in four phases. We call these “Come and See”, “Follow Me”, “Be with Me”, and “Remain in Me”. In each phase, he trained his disciples to adopt specific values, develop individual behaviors, habits, and virtues, and become involved in ministry. As church leaders we have carefully studied the Bible to collect “All that Jesus commanded”, and listed these in each of the four phases Jesus used in his disciple making process. Now what remains is that these truths are modeled, taught, embraced, and passed along. We are developing a JOURNEY MAP to help guide you along the process.
This will be a tool to guide you in becoming a disciple and making disciples, not just any kind of disciple, but the kind Jesus commanded us to become and make, one that obeys all that he commanded.
