What Is a Disciple?

A disciple is a person on a journey to follow Jesus. The purpose of this journey is to develop a deepening relationship with God, others, self and creation.

Faith Path at St. Mark’s
1. A path to feed and be fed to grow.
2. A path to form Jesus’s followers.
3. A path to further Christ’s kingdom on earth. To make disciples for the transformation of the world.

Discipleship, also called spiritual formation, is the process of transforming our inner self as a result of a deepening relation with God. Our inner self becomes the home of Jesus. Our thoughts, words and deeds become more characteristic of Jesus. As Paul said in Philippians 2:5, “Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ.”

Discipleship is…..

a journey, not a moment; it is dynamic, not static; it is individual, not uniform or cookie cutter. Journeys have a destination toward which they move.
