At St Mary's and Sale West we have a discipleship vision 'To make Disciples who make Disciples who make Disciples'
Our strategy for doing this is to:
provide a clear path for spiritual growth.
provide Discipleship Communities, Discipleship Courses and Serving Opportunities that are appropriate to every stage of maturity.
encourage every church member to develop and commit to Personal Spiritual Practices.
enable every church member to identify where they are in their journey with Jesus so that they can choose appropriate steps for their continuing growth.
The Great Commandment
This vision is based on the Great Commandment and the Great Commission
- ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Matthew 22: 37-39)
The Great Commission
- go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Matthew 28: 19-20)
