What is a disciple?  How can I be a disciple?

The simplest way to describe a disciple is a follower of Jesus.  What are some ways to become a disciple?  Listed below are the five characteristics of a dynamic disciple.  We invite you to explore each of these characteristics.  

- Believe in Jesus Christ

- Grow in Christ

- Gather in Christian community

- Love like Jesus

- Lead others to Christ
