What does it mean to follow Jesus?

We hear the language “follower of Jesus” all the time, but what does it mean to be a disciple, or apprentice, of the teacher from Nazareth? Put simply, it means you re-organize your life around three goals: Be with Jesus, become like Jesus, do what Jesus did. Our dream is that as we live this way, our lives, our communities, and our city will be transformed.

Be with Jesus

Become like jesus

Do what jesus did

What does it mean to practice the way of jesus?

Following Jesus is an entire life’s pursuit. It is not just an event on a Sunday but a “way” of life in community around the teachings of Jesus. To “practice the way of Jesus” is to adopt the lifestyle of Jesus, to put his teachings into practice in all aspects of your life. As we live this way, we are transformed from the inside out. We believe this kind of deep, authentic, radical change of character is possible even in the chaos of the modern, digital, urban world. Through teaching, practice, community, and the Holy Spirit, we can recover our humanity in discipleship to Jesus.

Discipleship to Jesus is a journey

Do what Jesus Did

Jesus is actively looking to recruit people into His work and mission. As you become like Jesus, you find yourself wanting to do what He did. Are you ready to serve?
