Make Disciples Small-Scale PackageMatthew 28:18–20 is called “The Great Commission,” and in these words we see Jesus send out his followers to make disciples, to baptize, and to teach people to obey all that Jesus taught them. He promises to be with them no matter what. Since this promise, for almost two thousand years, followers of Jesus have welcomed new disciples into Christian community and helped people come to know Christ and grow in faith.
In this unit, participants will learn that making disciples, at its simplest, is an invitation to others to live as followers of Christ. Although Christian beliefs and practices may vary within the same faith community, disciples of Jesus gather to worship and serve God together. Making disciples is not inviting others to have an identical faith to one’s own; it is an invitation to live into a faith that meets a person’s spiritual needs and contributes to the goodness of the community. The six dimensions of this practice that are discussed include: live like a disciple, go, be a witness, baptize, teach and learn about Jesus, and trust in Jesus’ presence always.
