Christian discipleship is a fundamental biblical trust demonstrated in the ministry of Jesus Christ and within the early church. Knowing the importance of discipleship, Jesus walked closely with his disciples to influence their lives so they could, in turn, influence the world-an impact felt around the world for many generations.
Christendom today puts less emphasis on the importance of Christian discipleship, and the result is a generation of believers who are not deeply rooted in the basic principles of Christianity. Proper Christian discipleship can not only equip believers with tools for effective ministry but also establish in them the basic biblical truths that they can pass on to future generations. The Five Pillars of Discipleship stresses the importance of five basic principles in Christian growth: Word of God, prayer, evangelism, fellowship, and praise and worship. Christians who constantly practice these things will be spiritually strong and also sound in Christian doctrines.
Uplifting and encouraging, this guide calls on pastors and ministers of the gospel to return to the fundamental truth of biblical discipleship for the benefit of all believers and their ministry.
