This is useless. Everyone knows this? The question is how to do it in our church context and cultural context.
Cameron King pls provide something useful Philip Williams the problem is that most pastors want a cookie cutter formula to create a cookie cutter church like the one their media idol promoted to have – though in actuality this may not be true Then we wonder why churches opened with the mechanical cookie cutter close down in crises a few years down the road oh WELL – the question is not how to do it in our church The question is why our church dont pray to KNOW how to do it – because churches that dont pray together die alone http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/dead-churches-rarely-pray/
Prayer is not in the diagram above, and it should be.
how else do you confess sins? to the pope?
There’s no process of how to facilitate people into prayer with in the diagram Pope Troy.
Church must led by the Spirit and not by our own understanding. The only way to do that is to be dead (indifferent) to the world and alive to Christ.
Philip Williams I would say the church needs to be led by the Spirit of God and the word of God. Implementing biblical principles and understanding them is part of the process.
has to be organic growth through prayer
Acts 13:1 & 2 shows what birthed the missionary work of the apostles. It was prayer and fasting, by a “committee” of only 5. From there we have the nurturing of the discipling of those won. Not many details regarding “discipling” in the Letters but the power of Pauls relationship comes thru. So who is that it’s about relationship and the models we have in the Pauline Epistles.
The biblical model of discipleship shows that it is a progressive journey
subsequent to salvation.
In Peter’s life after he believes in Jesus Christ for salvation, we see a funnel effect.
The progressive calls to follow begin with a general direction and commitment,
but become more and more specific in what that commitment entails.
Each time the disciple is called to follow, new significance is attached. With each call, the disciple is challenged to a deeper commitment and a greater sacrifice. This supports the understanding of discipleship as a direction, not a state.
It is a committed and progressive following of Jesus Christ as Master.
Anywhere on one’s journey toward becoming like Christ
one can be called a disciple, even in the midst of a temporary failure.
It seems reasonable to state that anyone who rejects the challenge
to commit himself to Christ ceases to follow
and removes himself from the path of discipleship.
When one is led by the Spirit, there is nothing coming from one’s own mind. One is hearer of the words that God puts in one’s own mouth. A mere observer of what the Spirit requires one to do and assists one in doing it.
