The Discipleship Gospel: Why the Gospel You Preach Determines the Disciples You Make

The Discipleship Gospel

Many pastors today preach a gospel that makes converts but not disciples. This results from “non-discipleship gospels,” which exclude the necessity to follow Jesus from their message. Making disciples requires intentionality, starting with the foundation of what we teach those in our care.
How we present the message of Jesus has powerful implications. There are many differing “gospels” in the Church today. We need to reclaim the power and responsibility of the Kingdom-focused, Discipleship Gospel.
