What exactly does a “devoted follower” or a “disciple of Jesus” look like? Unfortunately, a follower of Christ is often described by what they do rather than who they are. Following Jesus is more than doing religious things
- it is allowing God to fundamentally transform us in every aspect of who we are.
Jesus said the greatest commandment is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37).
So being a follower of Jesus must have to do with loving God and others. The chart below shows what a follower of Jesus should be striving for. However, this is a target. In order to be fully transformed in these areas it will take a lifetime of daily devotion and commitment to Him.
At WDCC we are developing a process to help you grow from right where you are in your walk with Jesus. We believe that Christian maturity (empowered by God's Spirit) is accomplished through connecting, growing, serving and going. Specifically, at WDCC, we accomplish this by committing to the vision we believe God has revealed to us at this time.
These small groups will meet in various locations to study the Scriptures, pray, encourage one another and serve. We encourage you to become part of one of these groups or even host one in your home.
LIFE GROUP Schedules, locations and topics, will be posted HERE when they become available
