A Disciple is a Follower. While all areas of the church exist to encourage people to be better disciples of Jesus Christ, the discipleship ministry is designed to connect more mature Christians with those that are not as far along in their Christian walks.
One on One Discipleship is often referred to as Life on Life. It is the heart of one person ministering to the heart of someone else. It is reproducing yourself in another Christian, ideally in a Christlike way. Life on Life fulfills the command of 2 Timothy 2:2 “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”
First Bible’s Life-on-Life Discipleship materials have been used for several decades. The current version of the material has 18 fundamental lessons.
In 2017, a new 6-lesson discipleship track for married couples was developed.
