What is a Disciple?

A disciple is someone who is a learner or follower who serves as an apprentice under the tutelage of a master. This relationship is not merely for the incorporation of knowledge, but it also functions as preparation so that the apprentice can do what the master does. The discipleship process equips the disciple to go out into the world and to perform the same actions that the teacher modeled for them. A true disciple must be sold out in every way to his master.

Discipleship is a process whereby a believer is in the process of becoming a complete and competent follower of Jesus Christ. It is about the intentional training of people who voluntarily submit to the Lordship of Christ and who want to become imitators of Him in every thought, word, and deed.
