Making Disciples

Biblical mission demands that those who claim Christ’s name should be like him, by taking up their cross, denying themselves, and following him in the paths of humility, love, integrity, generosity, and servanthood. To fail in discipleship and disciple-making, is to fail at the most basic level of our mission. The call of Christ to his church comes to us a fresh from the pages of the gospel: ‘come and follow me’; ‘go and make disciples.’
Cape Town Commitment, p. 71
