What is a Christian Disciple?

There are many different kinds of disciples in the world. We have political disciples, sports disciples, or even twitter disciples. To say it another way, there are individuals who commit themselves to follow a particular person, activity, or ideology. While these followers may not necessarily designate themselves using the term disciple, they fit the description as one who adheres to or is a pupil of another allowing that person, idea, or activity to influence the way they think, feel, and act in the world.

A Christian disciple is one who has chosen to follow Jesus Christ. At Asbury, we are people who have committed ourselves to following Jesus Christ and allow his life, death, and resurrection to influence the way we think, feel, and act in the world. Such is a commitment is a lifelong endeavor of learning to live into a new way of life.

Thus, whether it is through a formal Sunday school class, a small group that meets during the week, or the various short term studies throughout the year, our hope is to grow into mature disciples. We hope you will be able to find a place to fit and join us on the journey no matter where you may be in it. Take time to explore the various offerings we have for Adults to grow in faith.
