The word disciple simply means student or follower. In Christianity, a disciple is a person who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is important in the life of a Christian because it helps us to grow in our faith and to become more like Jesus. It also helps us to share our faith with others and to make disciples of them as well. We encourage everyone to join a Discipleship class where you can learn more about the Bible and how it applies to your life. Discipleship is an essential part of being a follower of Jesus Christ.
