Disciples for Life (DFL) is an application of HPBC’s Vision Statement “We are growing disciples of Jesus Christ, committed to worshipping God and transforming our world."
DFL offers the opportunity to grow as a Disciple of Christ for a lifetime, it is for those who are committed to growing in depth and in community as followers of Jesus.
Our next segment will run from September 21 through December 14, meeting on Sunday nights from 6:00 − 7:30pm in the Atrium Hall. The 2014 Fall semester DFL will run two of its five Tracks, Multiply and Mature. For both we will limit courses to 50 people each having tables of 10 or less in a group facilitated setting and a speaker to close each session. These courses are open to everyone.
Multiply Track – “Multiply” Disciples Making Disciples by Francis Chan
After Jesus rose from the grave, He left His followers with a simple command: “Go into all the world and make disciples” (see Matt. 28:19). The church should be known for this. If we are going to call ourselves followers of Jesus Christ, we should be making disciples. But most Christians today are not known for making disciples. We have developed a culture where a minister ministers and the rest of us sit back and enjoy “church” from a comfortable distance. This is not what God intends for His church. Every Christian is called by God to minister. You are called to make disciples. Multiply is designed as a simple resource that you can use to begin making disciples.
Mature Track – “Christian Beliefs” Twenty Basics Every Christian Should Knowby Wayne Grudem and Elliot Grudem
Christian Essentials are made plain and simple. God doesn't call every Christian to go off to seminary, but there are certain matters of discipleship and doctrine that every Christian simply must know. Theology is important because what we believe affects how we live. This track is designed for a relatively new believer in Jesus, or a more mature Christian looking for a brush-up on basics of the discipleship, faith, and Christian beliefs.
Each Track features:
- Small group setting (8 to 10 per table group)
- Time of prayer at tables
- Registration will be in the Atrium Foyer on Sunday mornings or by email below.
- Awana Program is available for children, ages 3 – grade 8.
