Discipleship Ministry

 

GOAL

The goal of this ministry is to help every member in the church to be a fruitful Christian in his or her spiritual life. Many activities are planned to make it easier for the new believers and the church members to grow in their relationship with the Lord.

 

DEFINITION

The word Disciple means a student who is following the instruction of another. But to be a true disciple of Christ you need to be a born again Christian in the family of God. It is written in John 1:12 "But to all who did receive Him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." Additionally, Jesus said in Luke 9:23 "If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me."

 

The discipleship department regroups four distinct programs:

 

BIG BROTHER AND BIG SISTER

  • We have a team for each age group to do follow up phone calls and weekly meetings to new believers as a big brother or sister.
  • The person who calls will set up a time to meet with the new believer for a one on one teaching.
  • We have books available for 8 weeks long teaching.
  • The big brother or big sister will commit to connect with the new believer for 8 weeks. During those weeks, the new believer will be trained, and learn the basics of Christian faith.

BAPTISM

  • Baptism is not a doctrine over which to argue, but a declaration over which to rejoice because a lost sheep has been found an unrighteous sinner has been given the gift of the righteousness of Christ.
  • We do have a baptism class to prepare the new believer for this very important decision. As soon as you are ready to take this step, please contact Pastor Samuel Menard

MEMBERSHIP

  • To be a member of Bethel Baptist Church the person need to know and agrees with the church rules and regulations. Therefore, the new person needs to attend a 6-week long membership class.
  • At completion of the membership class, the new member is ready to be introduced to the other church members. He or she must continue to attend bible study, Sunday school and prayer meeting to be very well equipped in order to go out to the others.

SPIRITUAL TALKS

We are dedicated to minister from the principals of God's holy word, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, to help our members apply God's wisdom and healing to life's traumas, past and present. We are going to administer profile testing to help them realize their true God-given Gift. It is our joy to help our church members find who they really are and the call of God on their lives.

In our spiritual talk program, our goal is to encourage members in need by applying God's healing principles to people with anxiety problems, fears, conflicts, phobias, marriage conflict past trauma, nightmares, eating disorders, grief, and anger.

By following these programs, our members will be fruitful Christians in their spiritual lives.
