Jesus commanded his followers to use discipleship as a Church growth tool. This is God’s only plan for growing healthy, well balanced Churches all over the world. The goal of discipleship is not to be original or independent.
The real purpose of making disciples is to pass on the knowledge and insights people in the past have learned to the next generation about who God is and how God interacts with people in this world.
With that in mind, there is a book I want to recommend for anyone interested in making disciples of their own. Here is a picture of the front cover of the book I want to recommend for you:
The Church has been asking itself questions about God for 2,000 years. I mention this because I want you to know that you do not have to search for answers alone. There have been men and women in every generation who had questions about God, and making disciples involves sharing the best answers they found to the questions they asked with you.
Part of my reason for setting up this website is so I could share insights into their successes (and failures) with you. I am working on this so you will not have to dedicate your time to looking for answers to questions that people in the past have already discovered.
That’s why I recommend this Wayne Grudem book very strongly. I also have a free video I found online that can help you understand what to do with the information in the Wayne Grudem book. The following video has some advice that can help you begin working to make disciples in your area.

I also sat down and typed up everything Jesus said about being one of His disciples in each of the four Gospels and the rest of the New Testament. You can read what Jesus Himself said to those who were interested in following him by clicking on the link below:
