Every follower of Jesus needs to be in a community of fellow disciples. This is essential to personal discipleship. To give glory to God through singing, Scripture reading, corporate intercession, expressing generosity, encouraging one another, corporate confession, and being equipped by the biblical preaching of God’s Word, the Bible are aspects of this local church gathering. The local church is also the body that prepares and sends ministers and fosters planting of new churches worldwide. Every disciple of Jesus belongs in a local community of fellow disciples. Disciple making should flow out of the local church.
