What happens when a person becomes a Christian?

When a person becomes a Christian, they receive an invitation from God to receive the benefits of what Jesus Christ accomplished for us. Those who accept the invitation are called disciples, and they participate in a process known as discipleship, which Jesus spoke about in the Bible.

“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20 ESV)

What is discipleship?

Discipleship is God’s strategy for nurturing faith in our lives. A disciple is like being an apprentice to someone who has more experience in serving the Lord. You share the details of your life with someone who can help you understand the consequences of the choices you can make because they have more experience than you.

If you want more information about discipleship, then I have some recommended resources for you, here they are:
