HALLMARKS OF DISCIPLESHIP

A love for the Master.

A love for fellow-disciples. Jesus said, "All men will know that you are my disciples if you love one another." (John 13:35).

A love for the local church. They keep themselves and their families firmly rooted in its nurturing soil.

A love for learning. Disciples are teachable. They learn to think like Christ. (See Philippians 2:5.) They are avid Bible readers, eager to know God’s word and apply it.

Disciples are ready to be treated as Jesus was and is.
