The Gospel Coalition 2013 National Conference
Jesus intends every disciple to make disciples, and he designs every local church to multiply other local churches. Yet somewhere along the way we have subtly and tragically taken the costly command of Christ to go, baptize, and teach all nations and mutated it into a comfortable call for Christians to come, be baptized, and listen in one location. The result is a rampant spectator mentality that skews discipleship across the church, stifles the spread of the church around the world, and ultimately sears the heart of what it means to be followers of Christ in local churches. This workshop explores corrective exhortations for us today based on New Testament principles and patterns for making disciples and multiplying churches.
