Making Disciples

In this series, we return to our church’s mission statement: “making disciples who worship, connect, serve, and impact.” “Making disciples” is the main command Jesus gave the church in the great commission (Matthew 28:19). God’s people are expected to grow as disciples and the church is instrumental in that growth. Our hope and goal is that everyone at Vista Grande will grow as disciples by getting involved in these four arenas. Worship is the corporate gathering when we assemble weekly as a church. Connecting is when we gather in smaller groups and fellowship and encourage each other around God’s Word. Serving is when we give our time, energy, and resources to benefit God’s people at VGBC. Impact is when we leave the campus in order to represent Christ, show acts of mercy, share the Gospel, and engage in missions. Our aim is to see people come to Christ so they begin growing as disciples. Each week we look at a different aspect of our mission statement.

Making Disciples who Impact
We begin by looking at the big picture of God’s desire to be known by all peoples. God has blessed us so we will bless others so He will be known and praised. We learn that this has been God’s desire and plan from the beginning. We also learn the ways Vista Grande is involved in making an impact for Christ globally and locally.

    Making Disciples who Serve
    We look at the parable of the talents and learn several important lessons about serving. For example, everything we have is a loan from God including our time, energy, money, and resources. We discover that as stewards we will give an account to God, so we are encouraged to use what God has given us to serve Him and His church.

    Making Disciples who Connect
    We often think of Christian fellowship as being an optional, small part of Christianity.  We discover that true fellowship is a vital aspect of discipleship.  We talk about the basis, goal, importance, and motivation for connecting.
