About This Website
A disciple is a learner and follower. A disciple of Jesus learns
what Jesus said - his teachings. He follows what Jesus did - his lifestyle. In other
words, Jesus impacts both his thinking and his actions.
This website focuses on the teaching aspect of discipleship.
However, by themselves, these teachings are incomplete; they need to be united
with actions, in order to become perfected. Because of this, we encourage you to
get involved - not in doing "religious activities," but in living your daily
life as a follower of Jesus. Let his teachings influence all your values and
** Where do we start? ** (Our foundation)
We have nothing to hide: We start with the Bible. Our
"manifesto" is described in the article, "The
Bible: God's Word to All People." If you do not
accept this starting point, then most likely you will not accept much else in this website. However, if you do accept this
starting point (and apply its principles to your life), you will most likely reach conclusions that are
similar to ours - even if you don't read anything else on this website!
Our Purpose & Goals
There are many changes that will occur, when one
becomes a follower of Jesus. This includes not just learning new facts,
but learning to apply them in one's life.
This website is a collection of articles, word
studies, and comments on many topics. Some are short and easy to
read; others are long and require serious concentration. They range
from in-depth research to humorous stories (which have a purpose
Many more things could be written about being a
disciple, or follower, of Jesus. But our purpose is not to
provide the final answer to everything. We want to challenge you to
explore for yourself what it means to be a disciple (follower) of Jesus.
Our goal is not only to encourage you to follow
Jesus - both in word (what you believe) and deed (what you do), but
to provide various resources, which we hope will help guide you
toward that goal. However, being consistent with our desire to see
God's Word honored above all things, we encourage you to not
blindly accept whatever we say, even if it sounds reasonable. Rather,
search the Scriptures themselves, to see if what we say is true.
(Follow the example of the Bereans, in Acts 17:11.) After all, it is
the Word of God, not what we say, which will live and endure forever
