As followers of Jesus, I don’t think we need to be convinced that we have been called to make disciples. We understand that is our mission. But if we are honest, many of us aren’t quite sure how to do it. What could it look like? How can I position my life and leverage my time in order to spiritually grow and multiply? How does this fit with the other facets of my life? Many of us find that we need encouragement, support and practical tools as we learn how to make the vision of disciplemaking a reality. That is why we have created this blog.
We are First Presbyterian Church of Edmond and we believe that God has called us to participate in His vision of NEW LIFE through JESUS for EDMOND and the WORLD. How do we do this? We Gather for worship and community, Grow in intimacy and understanding and Go to serve and share.
Although we all serve in different ministry contexts and live in our own sphere of influence, we have committed to be a community of people who each live out a personal culture of discipleship marked by our 7 Core Practices:
- Share Who You Are
- Care for One Another
- Read and Practice Scripture Together
- Pray Together
- Invest in People
- Serve Community
- Create and Send Leaders
These simple practices challenge us to continue to cultivate relationships with the people around us as we share new life through Jesus. We want to help you integrate these core practices into your rhythm of life where ever you may be. Whether you are from our particular church community or building the Kingdom in other parts of the world, we pray these stories, tools and tips will serve you well.
Have fun! We can’t wait to hear what God does in and through you!
